Some important developments occurred in the second quarter of 2022. During the Verus 3rd Quarter 2022 Investment Landscape webinar, we discussed:

  • June’s surprisingly hot 9.1% U.S. inflation reading, and the economic forces that could lead inflation to moderate from here, or head higher.
  • Broad economic weakening in a variety of areas, the possibility of recession in the U.S., and also some recent controversy around the definition of “recession”.
  • Growing evidence of a reversal from the low expected return environment of recent years, as interest rates, credit spreads, cheaper risk asset valuations, and inflation, all seem to indicate a more optimistic return outlook.
