From Inflation Shock to Recession Fears


December 15, 2022

4:30-5:30 p.m. ET


From Inflation Shock to Recession Fears

As the Fed attempts to tame raging inflation with aggressive rate hikes, the economy remains in the crosshairs. Tighter financial conditions, in response to elevated inflation, likely will take a toll on consumer spending and corporate sentiment. Accordingly, we believe a recession is the most likely economic outcome within the next few quarters.

Join Balaji Venkataraman, client portfolio manager for American Century Investments® as he discusses their market outlook.

What you can expect to learn:

• The potential risks to investors from the Fed’s hawkish policy, including financial market instability.

• The likelihood of inflation moderating but remaining uncomfortably high due to certain influences.

• The portfolio adjustments they’re making, including extending duration, with recession likely on the horizon.
