Investors have to make their decisions in an increasingly uncertain world. In addition to ‘traditional’ economic and financial risks, they also have to take into account the impact of monetary and fiscal stimulus, demographic developments, low interest rates, the Covid-19 pandemic and climate risk as additional risk factors on long-term investment horizons. Hens will present on how practitioners, benefitting from academic research results, build and apply scenario models to deal with these uncertainties in an integrated way to support their investment decision making.
