The emergence of Omicron marks another setback to an otherwise robust global economic recovery. At the same time, there is still scant signs of easing in supply bottlenecks, which are adding to consumer price inflation and raising the prospect of earlier-than-expected interest rate hikes by major central banks. Uncertainties over 2022 economic outlook are further compounded by idiosyncratic risks including, among others, a deteriorating debt crisis of Chinese property developers.
In this webinar, ICMIF Supporting Member Peak Re share insights on the next year’s economic outlook, including some major trends that are shaping up to transform economic growth, business outlook and consumer behaviours. Against this backdrop, Peak Re’s experts share their views on the pandemic and climate change’s impact on global health and health insurance, and what the P&C market will look like in 2022.
