In the past two years a lot of what investors took for granted has unravelled, which raises serious questions about the path forward. Extremely high inflation, very low unemployment, and very late policy tightening means central banks are not in a position to pivot on policy and bail out markets like the Fed did in 2016 and 2018.

In this paper Matt Sherwood, Head of Investment Strategy, Multi Asset, discusses the risks of a global recession and the key considerations for markets and investors over the next 12 - 14 months.
