Capital allocation will be a critical consideration for businesses looking for further growth in 2023.
After a unique 2022 on markets amid volatility and interest rate concerns, nailing where and how to invest will be paramount.
Markets in Europe and the United Kingdom are likely to experience continued pressures throughout 2023. Asia appears awash with opportunity but geopolitical pressures remain a concern.
Australia and New Zealand remain a viable investment option, while markets in the US have potential to be an attractive prospect in the New Year.
The big challenge for market participants in 2023 is going to be around liquidity. There will be volatility, which will cause some liquidity gaps, and likely some pain. Keeping a close eye on those developments will be critical.
Of the many opportunities in 2023, a key one that stands out is the ongoing emergence of digital assets. The year 2022 was a watershed one in the cryptocurrency space, but the emergence of stablecoins and the tokenisation of other asset classes will continue to gather pace in 2023 and beyond.
The economic and geopolitical factors that have shaped an unprecedented period for business around the world are not going anywhere soon.
With 2023 upon us, large organisations face a cocktail of influences impacting the way they do business: rapid digitisation, shifting supply chains, geopolitical uncertainty, and the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At ANZ Institutional, we know our customers are looking to position themselves to take advantage of these forces.
As part of our Outlook 2023 series, we’re asking our subject-matter experts to provide insights into a range of complex areas from across more than 30 markets – helping you better understand how you can prepare for the New Year. We’ll be sharing the responses with you over the coming weeks.
