The first half of 2023 has reminded us of the unintended consequences of aggressive monetary tightening. Though concerns over U.S. regional banks have subsided for now, it’s likely that economic growth and market stability will be called into question as central banks remain laser-focused on fighting inflation. As the impact of tightening monetary policy sets in, equity market leadership narrows and recession fears ramp up, investors face surmounting challenges to finding opportunities for sustainable growth.
