Undoubtedly, if 2022 has presented us with one thing, it’s uncertainty. With record inflation and rising interest rates, geopolitical unrest, and a seemingly never-ending global pandemic, the new year prompts investors to ask, what lies ahead? As advocates for understanding and planning, we discussed the full economic and investing environment, the trends we can anticipate, and the strategies investors may deploy to prepare and weather the year ahead.
The Nicola Wealth Strategic Outlook, hosted by President David Sung, featured presentations by John Nicola, Chairman & CEO, and Rob Edel, Chief Investment Officer, Bijal Patel, CFO and Head of Private Capital, and Mark Hannah, Managing Director, Nicola Wealth Real Estate. Our speakers each weighed in on the issues influencing today’s investing environment and how they impact their respective asset classes.
