A Difficult and Uncertain Recovery
Special Guest: Felix Zulauf
BFI Panelists: Frank Suess, Daniel Zurbruegg, Dirk Steinhoff
The COVID-19 crisis has pushed the global economy into a deep recession. The question is now, how quickly will the economy recover? The financial markets recovered quickly and regained pre-COVID levels rapidly. However, they appear to have disconnected from the economy. Generally, when that happens, the markets and the economy always reconvene. How that will occur is at the core of our discussion in this first New Era, Fireside Chat.
Moreover, we will also discuss other elements that were reviewed in the Special Report, On the Brink of a New Era – Are You Prepared?, like some of the pre-existing trends and factors that were already in place prior to COVID-19, and those that will continue to be key driving forces for the foreseeable future.
“We often refer to the economy and the stock market as the master and the dog. The master walks slowly but steadily in one direction whereas the dog runs ahead, falls back, but eventually moves in the same direction. At times, the two seem connected, and at times they appear disconnected. But they do belong together, and it is only a question of time, until the two reunite and move in the same direction.”
