The Trends Edition  

As we inch towards the end of 2022 and look ahead to 2023, the threat of mild economic recession is beginning to affect the economic outlook for the new year. In addition, the stubbornly elevated global inflation, high energy costs due to geopolitical risks and rapidly contracting EU economy are likely to pose hurdles to economic growth next year.

In an uncertain and fragile global economy, we continue to help our banking, asset management, private equity, hedge fund and corporate clients navigate through the current uncertainties through our research, analytics, bespoke technology and data services. Continuing the growth momentum, yet again, we outperformed our benchmarks. In September, we announced the acquisition of Cians Analytics, consolidating our leading position in the global financial services market. Acuity Knowledge Partners, with a headcount of over 5,500 employees globally, now serves over 500 customers across the banking and finance spectrum. We express our sincere gratitude for the opportunity to work with you, and we look forward to strengthening our partnership next year.

Every year, we provide insightful perspectives to investment professionals about global trends and recommendations to help them step into the new year with resilience and confidence.

I am delighted to share our 2022 year-end special edition, which captures leading trends and forecasts for 2023 across a broad horizon of wealth management, investment banking, private equity, commercial and corporate lending, and consulting services.

We thank you for your continued association with us in 2022 and wish you a safe and joyful holiday season and the very best for 2023.

Gyanendra N Pati, Senior Director, Global Head of Marketing
