2019: harnessing untapped potential. Interview with Thomas Suter, CEO QCAM Asset Management about too optimistic Investors in 2018, a promising global economy, uncertainties in the currency markets and large cash holdings.

The macro perspective

The debate about the neutral interest rate in the US. The US Federal Reserve is discussing the possible end of its rate hike cycle.
