Mid-Year Update

Thursday, 5 July 2018

The Dolder Grand · Kurhausstrasse 65 · 8032 Zurich


Lombard Odier is pleased to invite you to our mid-year update on the macroeconomic landscape.

Please confirm your presence before Thursday, 28 June 2018.


Volatility has returned - and so has investor uncertainty. After a brilliant start in January, global equity indices corrected due to geopolitical tensions and renewed concerns of inflation. The number of unknown variables has also increased, notably through protectionist measures and short-circuit reactions at a political level.

Together with our Chief Economist Samy Chaar, we would like to invite you to take a closer look at the current environment with us. Have we already reached the end of the bull market or will the world powers join forces for a stronger global economy?
