Credit is a significant part of many of our clients’ portfolios, which is why we started Credit Insights -- a new webinar series aimed at delivering our latest views and outlooks on the global credit market.
This session: Although we are seeing signs of a recovery in the global economy, there are risks to momentum for the balance of 2017. In the US, despite having failed to deliver on a number of campaign promises in his first 100 days in office, President Trump is still the best… and possibly last… chance for inflation and growth in the USA. Monetary stimulus has run its course. Next, is fiscal stimulus. Where does our research team differ from the market consensus on the potential winners and losers of potential tax and trade policy reform? We hope you can attend to find out.
