Podcast: Q&A on Central Banks and Interest RatesSep. 26, 2022
As the central banks prioritize taming inflation, markets react to the near-term volatility and the threat of recession. But at what point will the rate hikes slow down or pause altogether? And where do the attractive opportunities lie in the interim? In this episode, Erin Allen and Alfred Lee discuss the latest moves from the U.S. Federal Reserve, policy shifts globally, and what this means for the economy.
Erin Allen is the Vice President, ETF Online Distribution, BMO ETFs. She is joined on the podcast by Alfred Lee, Portfolio Manager and Investment Strategist at BMO Global Asset Management.
