Seeing the world differently
There’s still a lot we don’t know about coronavirus, and a return to how life was at the start of 2020 is some way off. Although lockdown restrictions are easing, the pandemic will affect our lives in many ways. What’s likely to get back to normal, in one form or another, and what’s likely to change more permanently? We’ve produced our mid-year outlook to help investors make sense of an unusually uncertain situation for the global economy and financial markets.
5 takeaways from Quintet’s mid-year Counterpoint:
1. The global economy is moving from despair to repair
2. We expect stabilisation to be followed by gradual recovery
3. Sustainability will increasingly drive asset prices
4. The crisis has accelerated structural changes in our economy
5. We can help you navigate the opportunities and challenges that we are facing
Due to the current climate and to further support Quintet’s sustainable strategies they’ve taken the exciting decision to digitalise the mid-year Counterpoint publication and reduce our use of paper. By digitalising Quintet’s publication they have estimated that they will avoid over 8 THOUSAND KILOGRAMS of CO2 within the Quintet group. That’s the equivalent of TAKING A CAR OFF THE ROAD for more than 600 DAYS.
