21.09.22 - IEF & BCFE Market Forecast
Forecasts before the possible change of cycle
In this beginning of autumn 2022 we find a certain consensus that we are entering a new economic cycle. It is marked by the confirmation of inflationary tensions, monetary reactions in the form of rate hikes and, of course, the spillover effects of war and sanctions in the form of deglobalizing trends.

We believe that it was an appropriate time to analyze the macroeconomic outlook and its effects on companies and financial markets. Especially to assess the intensity of the foreseeable economic contraction and estimates of possible stabilization horizons and reaction to fiscal and monetary policy measures.
This analysis was carried out at the event "IEF & BCFE Market Forecast. Forecasts before the possible change of cycle" that was held on 21.09.22 at 12:30 CET in online format organized by Barcelona Centre Financer Europeu (BCFE) and the Institute of Financial Studies (IEF).
