Annual Forecasting 2023

Tuesday 17 January 2023 | 18:15 - 20:30 | Evening Event

Please note, this is an in-person event.

2022 is one of those years we won’t forget in a hurry. War broke out, food and energy prices  soared  and  after a 15-year absence, inflation came back roaring, soaring into double-digits. Internal politics added to the uncertainty and geo-politics and saw tensions rising across the globe. Is this a perfect storm for a challenging 2023? 

This is your chance to get involved in the debate and find out what your peers think at this refreshingly different, engaging event: 

Janet Mui, CFA, Head of Market Analysis, Brewin Dolphin and Kevin Gardiner, Global Investment Strategist, Rothschild & Co return to CFA UK’s flagship Annual Forecasting event to share their insights on world markets – with the exception of the UK. That task will fall to you, where in small groups you will  have the opportunity to share your 2023 predictions with the wider group. 

This is your chance to candidly share your view on the year ahead and gauge the sentiment of your colleagues in a private forum. 

Then, after what promises to be a lively debate, continue the conversation over a drink and make a few new connections who may be a helping hand in what might be a challenging year ahead.
