As of the beginning of 2022 a cascade of geopolitical events has impacted both the global economy and financial markets.
We will begin by proposing an economic review to offer an interpretation of the current environment and discuss what the future may hold for the coming months. We will subsequently review the portfolio strategy in relation to the economic context.
We hope that these discussions will allow you to learn more about these topics.
