LCP Vista Autumn
2022: Regime shifts and contrasting extremes


The continuing story of 2022 is markets grappling with the first global rate-rising cycle for 15 years, alongside inflation that feels out of control and continually surprising. And that is before we even start getting into politics and geopolitics. It’s a lot to wrestle with.

Long-term investors need to raise their gaze above the immediate events and figure out what really matters for their goals.

In this edition of Vista, our nine articles help you take stock of the current moment and place the challenges and opportunities in the right context.
