A roadmap for navigating protectionism – the elevator and the staircase


Join our strategy and economics experts at the 25 April webcast

What are the risks of US protectionist measures on trade and services and tit-for-tat counter-measures setting off a fully blown global trade war? How could this round of tariffs and import restrictions, seeking to protect local jobs, revive local industries and address trade imbalances, affect the global economy and financial markets?

In this 45-minute webcast, three BNP Paribas Asset Management experts present distinct risk scenarios and discuss what investors can do to prepare for each one.

Our speakers will cover:

  • Protectionism and the potential to reverse globalisation and curb prosperity
  • Scenarios in which protectionist measures could escalate into trade wars
  • How would trade wars pan out in terms of, for example, geopolitical tension, the outlook for growth and market volatility?
  • Economic and market implications; effects on asset prices and risk premiums
  • Implications for a multi-asset strategy including the need for hedging
