After two years of COVID lockdowns and health restrictions, the world finally seems headed into the post-pandemic era. That is a good thing.

But this new world presents plenty of challenges for economies and companies. Inflation, supply chain shortages, rising oil prices, geopolitical conflicts and much more are altering expectations for growth and stability. A number of questions arise:

  • What does the economic recovery look like in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia?
  • What are the risks to financial markets?
  • Where are the business opportunities?
  • What financial indicators will investors be watching closely in the coming months?
  • Will there be a surge in corporate bankruptcies?
  • After spending big in the pandemic, what role will governments play in powering (or hurting) growth?

To answer these questions and more, Smith Business Insight and Queen’s Executive Education assembled a blue-chip panel of financial experts from around the world in this free 60-minute webinar, which took place on Tuesday, April 5 at 10:30 a.m. (EDT). 

Featuring Ted Goldthorpe, partner and head of credit at BC Partners in New York City; Jerry del Missier, founder and executive chairman of Copper Street Capital in London, England, and Wei Wang, Distinguished Professor of Finance at Smith School of Business and director of the Master of Finance–Beijing program. This disussion is moderated by Daniel Tisch, president & CEO at Argyle.
