Portfolio positioning is never easy, but times of transition make these allocation decisions both more challenging, and more critical. Expectations for lower policy interest rates and more subdued economic growth introduce their own set of risks and opportunities. But regardless of if the Fed attains their goal of a soft or softish landing, the relentless march of innovation persists. The past few years have borne witness to a notable surge in innovation, marked by the rapid adoption of new technologies. And in this environment of change, disruption creates opportunity.

Join Global X for their market and thematic outlook for 2024 as well as a discussion of their portfolio solutions.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Market and economic outlook for 2024.
  • The improved environment for the 60/40 portfolio and the importance of diversification.
  • How to use thematic equity to differentiate your portfolio offering in a risk aware manner.
