Is a recession on the way? There’s a good chance the answer is, yes. When? Well, that’s harder to predict – though most pundits point to the year 2020. At Bloomberg Invest, we bring together the biggest businesses and the biggest institutions to chart a way forward.
We are operating in a time of significant risks: global growth is no longer synchronised, the prospect of a spiralling trade war remains real, the Chinese economy is showing signs of stress, the US economy is overheating. Rising oil prices are adding inflationary pressure in key economies. Forecasts for an imminent recession could significantly influence investor behaviour over the coming months.
So, how should you organise your finances? Where should you put your money? Where is it safe – and where are the best returns? At Bloomberg Invest, we bring together the biggest businesses and the biggest institutions to chart a plan of action for the next year.
