GIC Insights 2019

Bringing great minds together.

Theme

Finding the Middle Ground

We are in unprecedented times. Global economic prospects are increasingly uncertain, governments have limited policy ammunition, while populism and protectionist pressures continue to rise. Businesses are facing changing supply chain dynamics and slowing earnings growth, and investors are dealing with increasing volatility and falling returns. Technology continues to rapidly advance and disrupt, but increasingly, externalities alongside the possibilities need to be assessed. Given an increasingly polarized world, finding the middle ground between the key economic powers, growth and inclusiveness, as well as risks and opportunities for investing and technology will be top of mind for all stakeholders. At GIC Insights 2019, we will discuss these issues and the implications for investors and businesses.
