Most investors are deeply worried about a forthcoming recession and the damage it could cause to markets. However, recession is hardly the biggest risk to worry about. Rather, investors should fear the end of globalization, anemic interest rates and growth, and liquidity risks, says Amundi Asset Management. According to Amundi’s CIO, the world’s future will be more regional and less global and suffer from aging populations. “Investors like me have been long global trade for three decades … It is the reason international diversification doesn’t work”.
FINSUM: So the argument here is that long-term stagnation causes by aging and the end of globalization is a bigger threat than a recession. Seems a solid point of view.
