Markets are likely to test limits in 2020. As the global economic expansion plods on, monetary policy is nearing limits in its effectiveness, interest rates are pushing lower bounds, and rising inequality and populism are driving geopolitical tensions.
In this session, Ben Powell from the BlackRock Investment Institute will explore these dynamics and identify 3 investment themes for the year ahead.
