In 2021, we saw a strong global economic recovery, and we are likely to enter a post-recovery phase in 2022 — this will be very different from the pre-COVID-19 landscape. This global metamorphosis brings new challenges for investors and requires some shifting of gears to adjust to the change in pace. As we share our views, we aim to provide you with insights and ideas to help you position your portfolio for change and capture the right opportunities.
2022 will likely be slower than 2021, but it will continue to get better. I hope you continue to stay safe as we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
