  2021 has been a challenging year for global investors, attributable to both stocks’ and bonds’ weak performance as a result of the Fed’s tightened monetary policy, coupled with the conflict in Ukraine and the associated rise in energy prices. These factors are likely to drive down global growth this year. In this environment, forward-looking banks and asset managers are looking to drive front-office efficiencies to lower costs while retaining the ability to take advantage of profitable revenue opportunities in the market. We are delighted to present our latest perspectives to help clients navigate these uncertain times while driving efficiencies and innovation.
