APAC Senior Investors Talk. Looking towards 2021 with the hindsight of an “unprecedented” 2020
2020 will go down in history as a year to remember – for good and bad. As the reality of Covid-19 and its impact on the economy hit, “unprecedented” may have become one of the most commonly used words to describe global events this year: the extent and speed of the sell-off of financial markets in March, the scale and scope of monetary policy response globally and the subsequent magnitude and divergence of recovery. Three of APAC’s highly respected investment leaders will join us in this webinar to discuss what lies ahead for markets in 2021, the investment strategies most suited to this environment and how to position portfolios for what looks set to be another unprecedented year ahead.
This session is generously sponsored by J.P. Morgan Asset Management.
