About the Event
By BlackRock (on Healthscience sector)
BlackRock sees a new world of higher macro and market volatility. Central banks are responding with aggressive rate hikes to contain inflation that is rooted in production constraints, but BlackRock sees the Fed ultimately living with higher inflation as it sees the effect of its rate hikes on growth and jobs. It is important to stay nimble in finding investment opportunities in today’s uncertain markets. Hear from BlackRock as they discuss the opportunities they are seeing in the healthcare equity sector globally.
By Franklin Templeton (on Technology sector)
Technology remains as one of our focus areas for 2022. The pandemic hastened a digital transformation inertia that has shown no signs of slowing down. We believe that the crisis was the beginning of our society’s digital transformation. The events over the past few years helped to accelerate investments in “work from home,” cyber security, workflow automation, remote healthcare, and omni-channel commerce technologies. Consumers will continue to embrace new commerce tools and switch preference to digitally augmented experiences. With the accelerated adoption of technology-related hardware and software, we believe digital transformation will have a long-term positive impact on the broader market and accelerate from 2022 and beyond.
Join us, Franklin Templeton, in uncovering the key drivers for continued growth in the Technology sector, the potential headwinds, and how Franklin Technology Fund continues to unearth attractive opportunities for investors in the long-term.
