Thought leadership

Beyond investments, we want to provide you with the latest insights on shifting trends that are impacting business leaders worldwide.

In 2002, the technology bubble burst. 2008 was a credit crisis and 2012 a sovereign debt crisis. This year, the coronavirus pandemic and oil price collapse have taken the world by surprise, likely leading to an unprecedented hit to global growth.

While it is probably premature to call the end of this current bear market, we highlight some history lessons that investors can reflect on when managing an investment allocation during crisis times (regardless of what triggers it).
