HSBC’s 38th Global Investment Seminar – Going Virtual

HSBC’s 38th Global Investment Seminar – Going Virtual

Monday, 25 January – Thursday, 28 January 2021

REGISTER

The wellbeing of our customers and our colleagues is our first priority, so in light of the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to make the 38th Annual HSBC Global Investment Seminar – entirely virtual for the first time.

Major breakthroughs on vaccine developments have lowered uncertainty and revived confidence even as many advanced economies find themselves under varying degrees of lockdown amid worryingly high rates of COVID-19 infections. The outlook is brightening but how will the pace and mix of global growth evolve through 2021? Can China, the world’s single biggest driver of global growth, be relied upon to support the next leg of the recovery elsewhere?  What does a post-Brexit world look like for the UK and EU? How constrained will US president-elect Joe Biden be in delivering on his campaign promises. We ask whether markets are right to be displaying a greater appreciation of the risks of higher inflation? And consider the impact on the rates and FX markets around the world, including whether it’s time to be all-in or more selective on EM assets.

Join us to hear from HSBC’s highly rated economists and strategists as they present their latest thinking on the major themes for markets and economies, along with their forecasts and views for 2021.

Meet our expert speakers, Simon Hart, RSM UK International lead partner and Joe Brusuelas, RSM US Chief Economist, who will explore the geopolitical and economic trends and predictions which may impact the future of your business.

Global Economic Outlook for 2021 and Beyond: Headwinds and Tailwinds

Global Economic Outlook for 2021 and Beyond: Headwinds and Tailwinds

Thursday, January 14, 2021

8:30 – 10:30 am EST

REGISTER

Automation Alley’s virtual event will feature international business experts whom will discuss the shifting dynamics of the global economy and how companies can best position themselves to take advantage of the opportunities and challenges of doing business around the world in 2021. For example, will we finally see the coronavirus in our rearview mirror or will it boomerang its way back with a second or even a third wave? How will the seemingly intractable U.S.-China trade conflict continue to impact the international economy at large? Will nationalism, populism and the decoupling of trade and investment relations between nations lead to a new cold war between the superpowers? Equally, if not more importantly, how will the U.S. presidential election and our nation’s increasing political polarization impact the entire equation?

Other things to watch out for include geopolitical risks (i.e., China, Iran, North Korea and Russia) and black swans events or potential blind spots that may disrupt the future performance of U.S. business and industry. Closer to home, how will these factors affect Michigan’s business climate, especially our automotive, advanced manufacturing, defense and other high-tech industries?

Speakers will focus on industries and countries/regions around the world where growth opportunities are particularly strong. They will also examine projected trends in two-way trade and investment flows and identify industries and countries that will either benefit or be challenged by globalization in the short and medium terms.  Learn from leaders of our World Economic Forum Advanced Manufacturing Hubs about innovative projects around the globe.
