Equiti brings global economist Nouriel Roubini to address the outlook for the global economy

26 Aug 2020

Equiti Group, a progressive provider of multi-asset financial products, will sponsor one of the world’s best-known economists, Professor Nouriel Roubini, to address investors and fund managers on the 8th September at a webinar hosted by AIM Summit. AIM Summit is the leading alternative investment management platform for discussions on investment developments, global market conditions and the latest trends.

Roubini will share his insights on the short and medium-term outlook for the global economy and what lies ahead for investors, whether we can expect an anemic U-shaped, a quick V-shaped or a W-shaped double-dip recession, and what are the upside and downside risks for the global economy.

Addressing the International Monetary Fund in 2006, Roubini warned of the impending credit and housing market bubble and subsequent global recession. His predictions became a reality in 2008, with the bubble bursting and reverberating into a global financial crisis lasting well into the next decade.

As the world faces another financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, investors are keen to hear from global experts on how long this crisis will last. How long will the demand for safe-haven assets such as gold continue? These and many other questions will be addressed.

Iskandar Najjar, CEO of Equiti Group, said: “Equiti is honoured to bring a world-class and highly-regarded global economist and international advisor of Nouriel Roubini's stature to share his views on the pace of the global economic recovery.

“His insights will help investors with their investment decisions to minimise risks and maximise returns in this climate of market volatility and economic instability.

“Equiti is delighted to be sponsoring this very special AIM Summit event.”
