Live: Thursday, March 18, 2021 - 15:30 GMT


As battered economies and political systems struggle to recover after a tumultuous 2020, global markets continue to perform robustly. But with the Covid-19 crisis entering its drawn-out final act, investors remain will remain exposed to multiple downside risks – not just monetary, but political too. Risks range from instability in emerging and frontier markets; to an unprecedented debt hangover; mounting geopolitical tensions; and the economics and politics of a messy energy transition. In this webinar our analysts will dig into these key topics, exploring their drivers and discussing potential implications and strategies for global investors across all key asset classes.

  • Looking ahead to the longer term, how the energy transition is likely to affect politics and political risk in the world’s net oil exporters
