2023 Economic & Financial Market Update Webinar


Steve Rick 
Director, Chief Economist 

Scott Knapp, CFA®
Chief Market Strategist


Economic and financial market conditions are still highly distorted by the COVID pandemic and the policy responses that followed. Labor markets are very tight, and consumer inflation recently rose at rates not seen in decades. Political division around the world and shortages caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine add to current uncertainty. Despite all of this, the future is very bright for investors who can remain patient until conditions inevitably improve.

CUNA Mutual Group Annuities brings you two renowned guests, our Chief Economist Steve Rick and Chief Market Strategist Scott Knapp, to discuss the current state and outlook for financial markets and the economy. Special emphasis will be placed on longer-term implications of current events for investors and other decision-makers. Please join us for this highly informative and entertaining session.

In this session, you will learn answers to questions such as:

  • Will inflation be tamed by tighter monetary conditions?
  • Will central banks around the world trigger a recession?
  • Has the “Great Moderation” been replaced by the “Great Reflation”?
  • Will war in Ukraine and political divisions around the world lead to permanent changes in the global economy?
  • What should investors expect as markets respond to conflicting economic data?
