Episode 4: How to weather the coming recession

The late 2022 predictions of an impending global recession have not materialised, but the global economy is not out of the woods yet. In the fourth episode of the series "Shelter from the storm: Investing in the era of uncertainty," sponsored by EquitiesFirst, we look at the risk of persistent high inflation and global economic slowdown for Asia-Pacific economies. We also discuss how investors are adjusting their portfolios in response to the new reality of high interest rates.

Our guests are:

  • Charlie Buxton, head of investment management at The Fry Group
  • Dhruv Arora, founder and CEO of Syfe

Shelter from the storm: Investing in the era of uncertainty is a five-part podcast series, supported by EquitiesFirst.
