The Markets, Economy, and Impact of COVID-19

Please join us for a special update from the UBS Chief Investment Office outlining different scenarios to consider and a discussion on what the post-COVID-19 world looks like.
Audience: Open industry. All apparel and footwear industry professionals, regardless of AAFA membership, are encouraged to participate.

Description:

As world leaders are gradually lifting restrictions on daily life and commerce due to COVID-19, the course of the pandemic and its economic consequences remain unclear. Much will depend on the extent to which the fiscal and monetary response can offset the negative economic impact until we return to a sense of normalcy. After the pandemic ends, we see key structural changes coming: a world more indebted that is less global and more digital. Please join us for a special update from the UBS Chief Investment Office outlining different scenarios to consider and a discussion on what the post-COVID-19 world looks like.
