Markets, Economics and More: Insights into the post COVID-19 world​

About the masterclass:

The jury on how markets and economies will look post the COVID-19 pandemic, is still very much out. Significant differences in views abound. Whilst the International Monetary Fund recently estimated that the "Great Reset" may shrink global GDP by as much as 15%, the World Bank insists that governments have the tools to offset the pain. The debate rages on and many key questions remain unanswered, including: 'How will the pandemic impact on markets and economies and then society at large?'; 'How did the world get to this point and how best to position yourself for the new (not) normal?'

The JBS presents a bespoke, once-off Masterclass with well-known investment expert Glenn Silverman. Join us as he delivers a backdrop to the COVID-19 crisis, before delving into an analysis of the likely market and economic outcomes shaped primarily around five global Megatrends:

  1. Finite Earth
  2. Society
  3. Shifts of power
  4. Technology
  5. Financial repression

This Masterclass will appeal as much to the lay audience as it will to the investment professional.  At the end of the Masterclass, you will have a sensible and practical framework which can be used to assess and debate the likely impact of the pandemic on the world.
