Now that we’ve published our Solving for 2024 themes, we explore the behind the scenes thinking that led us to our assessment on the state of markets.
As 2023 comes to a close, with its turbulent and challenging market conditions, we look ahead to navigating the complex yet hopefully rewarding landscape to come. How can investors manage volatility and risk, and still find promising investment opportunities? What does the process of creating the ten themes entail? And what strategies can investors adopt to navigate these ever-changing financial markets effectively? On this episode of Disruptive Forces, Anu Rajakumar goes behind the scenes with Shannon Saccocia, Chief Investment Officer for NB Private Wealth, to understand the robust debates that shaped the selection of the Solving for 2024 themes and how they accommodate varying asset class perspectives as well as regional and geographic considerations.
