Supply chain disruptions, geopolitical flare-ups and ultra-accommodative monetary and fiscal policy coming out of the COVID lockdowns have been some of the factors sparking runaway inflation to levels not seen in nearly five decades.

However, many are classifying this as “cyclical inflation” and proclaiming that “structural deflationary” forces will prevail in the years ahead as globalization, technological advancements, overwhelming debt levels and worsening demographics will continue to put downward pressure on prices.

Many smart people are on both sides of the debate about whether we’ll have ongoing stubbornly high inflation or return to the deflationary environment we’ve experienced over the past few decades. More importantly, how do investors position themselves for these potential outcomes?

Listen to our panel of asset allocators and industry experts discuss how they’re structuring portfolios to navigate the uncertain inflationary outlook.

Let us handle the fresh hors d’oevres while you dive into your best business casual attire for this live, in-person event.
