The end of a cycle like no other

We are nearing the end of the largest monetary policy experiment of all time, and ascendant nationalism, staggering inequality and a widespread loss of hope amid the younger generation are among its varied fruit. The good news? Things only change when they absolutely must.

The #SaxoStrats believe the effects of monetary misallocation, potential trade wars and the emergence of tech-sector monopolies are helping define a cycle like no other. But it’s fast coming to an end.

With youth sentiment at an all-time low, we must embrace our rapidly-evolving landscape, both financial and political, and realise our future will not, for once, merely be an extension of our past.
