Market outlook 2022: our analysts’ expectations
The past couple of years have been marked by lockdowns, vaccine rollouts, re-openings and inflation. This time last year, it felt like the worst was behind us and that 2021 would bring about the end of the uncertainty Covid-19 brought us. As we all know, this never really happened.
As we started to prepare for 2022, thanks to the vaccine rollout and increasing growth, markets seemed confident that the new year would create opportunities. But the omicron variant has dampened spirits once again. Now the message is clear: volatility is likely to continue.
Looking ahead, there’s a sense of déjà vu. No one knows what’s in store for us but there are a few trends that are likely to follow us from 2021, and some exciting opportunities that the new year could bring.
