2014 Outlook

In an audio webcast, UBS's most influential Opinion Leaders discussed their views on what could be in store for the global economy in the months ahead. Curt Custard and other Opinion Leaders discussed why they are predicting a modest acceleration in growth next year and what the major risks and opportunities are for the world economy and markets in 2014. The discussion covered topics where our Opinion Leaders are in agreement, including global growth, global equities and US high yield credit, as well as some which sparked some healthy debate, such as how to play the Japanese story and tapering. The panel then addressed questions submitted by employees in advance and during the broadcast.
