Economic Outlook 2020: Market Optimism During Turbulent Times

According to a Fortune Poll, while investors see a 2020 recession coming, they still think there’s money to be made. In fact, while 58% of investors think a recession is likely in 2020, 76% think the stock market will rise.

The interesting dynamic of a forecasted upward market and downward economy is not surprising given a year of trade policy challenges & protectionist measures, including escalating trade tensions between the United States & China, the UK’s exit from the European Union looming large and pending regulatory changes for US corporates.

BAB is fortunate to have a diverse group of global economic experts join us for a breakfast session discussing the impact of these trends, and the ripple effects on US and UK businesses as we head into 2020.
