The global capital markets have continued to navigate choppy waters with shifting tides of interest rates and macroeconomic currents at the center of forces shaping investment horizons. Digitalization has renewed opportunities for growth and inflation is cooling. Yet the cost of capital will remain high for the foreseeable future and the US IPO market is still waiting for its rebound. On the ground, consumer and business trends are changing in real time, keeping business leaders on their toes. Juggling contradictory macro signals and consequent business adaptations, how are luminaries navigating the crossroads of global finance? What are the mega-forces shaping their vision and decisions? Where are global opportunities and untapped markets not to be overlooked?
