ANNUAL INVESTMENT OUTLOOK 2022 
 

Navigating Transition 2022

14th January 2022

As we wave farewell to 2021, we pause briefly to reflect on what will shape markets and investment strategy in 2022 and beyond. Inevitably, the effects of the global pandemic will still be with us for a long time, but there is more to the future than that. Global central banks will deal with rising inflation for the first time in a generation. The trend towards ESG-focus in investing has moved from the margin to the mainstream...

In our annual outlook attached, we deal with these and other issues. We look forward, not backwards, and we glean some insights into the trends that will be the pertinent ones to pay attention to this year.
