Finalto unveils 2023 Watchlist – What’s in store for markets
What’s in store for financial markets in 2023? It would be difficult to foresee the events of the past two years, but Finalto is hoping to lay out a few things you should keep a watch for in 2023.
The 2020s have seen a remarkable amount of change and disruption to financial markets. Whilst 2023 may not provide the kind of shocks we witnessed with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic or the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it would be naïve to rule anything out.
As the last few years have shown us; from political earthquakes like Brexit and Donald Trump; from the rise of cryptocurrencies to the end of cheap money; from pandemic to war; the financial markets are at the mercy, and are the reflection, of world events everywhere.
In this detailed report, Finalto explores the current financial landscape, and hypothesises about what we could see coming in the next 12 months.
The analysis ranges from market consensus to bold calls and grey swans, but all are noteworthy. Finalto will continue to review this commentary throughout the year as we see what twists and turns come to meet us.
Neil Wilson, Chief Market Analyst and author of The Watchlist, says that inflation will be the big buzzword of 2023.
“It can take years for inflation to come back down – we have seen a paradigm shift in terms of inflation and this will mean it stays high in spite of everything the central banks throw at it,” he said.
But The Watchlist touches on more than just financial policy, covering geopolitics, the ongoing ramifications of Covid-19, Crypto, Energy and plenty of other topics.
“We await to see what happens in 2023 with interest. For the first time in many years investors cannot bank on central banks coming to the rescue. In this paper we attempt to outline some of the key themes, trends and tail risks for markets,” added Wilson.
