Global economies have entered a new chapter with the war in Ukraine, lockdowns in China, and supply-chain disruptions. And now there’s the rising risk of stagflation.
What causes stagflation? What dangers does it present to monetary and fiscal policy? How will stagflation impact the liquidity and capital positions of financial firms? How can investment and risk managers prepare to meet the unprecedented challenges?
Please join us for the third GARP New York Chapter meeting of 2022. Our panel of investment and risk experts will discuss the latest inflation developments and their impact on risk in the financial services sector, including:
• The current inflation and global economic outlook
• An examination of stagflation through the risk lens
• Optimal market and investment strategies
• The change of inflation measurements over time
• What we have learned from history, particularly the stagflation of the 1970s
In addition, Bill May, GARP's Global Head of Certifications and Educational Programs, will present findings from the latest GARP Risk Snapshot, focused on inflation and interest rates. During his talk you will learn about risk managers’ expectations for:
• Inflation and interest rates for 2022 and beyond
• Adjustments to models and/or scenario analysis or stress tests going forward to accommodate higher inflation
• The use of derivatives to hedge inflation risk directly or indirectly
• The impact of inflation on liabilities
