Last year it seemed that investment markets were aligned against investors. As the Fed raised rates at a record-setting pace in modern history, equities posted their worst returns since 2008 and bonds experienced one of the largest drawdowns on record.

• US and Geopolitics – How will domestic gridlock and the past year’s geopolitical strife impact 2023?
• The Economy – Will a much-anticipated recession materialize in 2023 and what does it mean for equity and bond investors?
