Navigating the New Global Landscape: Insights on Geopolitical Shifts and Economic Realities in 2024 and Beyond

Frank Kelly, Political Strategist, Founder and Managing Partner
Fulcrum Macro Advisors LLC

Geopolitics and geoeconomics as we know them have radically and rapidly changed in the last few years. More than ever before, what happens globally now has a direct and often immediate impact on our businesses, putting new pressures on supply chains, access to critical commodities and the ability to maintain orderly and predictable business operations. How does this affect the U.S. economy and our national manufacturing sectors? What does this mean for financial markets going forward? Frank Kelly presents a “users guide” for what industries, financial institutions and their clients should expect for the rest of 2024 and 2025 and how best to manage these risks to achieve successful outcomes.
