Partners Capital Insights 2024 Executive Summary

Stay the course in a global economy that bends but does not break.

We expect continued elevated volatility from rising political and
geopolitical risks with roughly 50% of the world’s population voting
in 2024 and multiple high-risk geopolitical conflicts including Ukraine
and the Middle East with potentially another brewing in Taiwan. The
economic resilience of 2023 will likely also be challenged by the delayed
impact of monetary tightening, lower household excess savings,

source of return to investors able to allocate nimbly to exploit them.
