As The World Turns...To a New Regime?

The last 3 years have likely felt a bit "soap opera-ish" with all the plot twists investors have faced. Concerns have ranged from global pandemic/recession to raging bull market and inflation and now bear markets, record rising interest rates and fear of a potential recession. It begs the question of where do we go from here and has the world fundamentally changed in how we operate?

Please join us for our first in-person annual dinner since 2020 and hear from three leading experts on whether the world has shifted to a new regime and what it potentially means for global economies and capital markets.
