The Inflation Poltergeist…it’s baaaaack! Inflation Types and Sources – Their Impact on Consumers and Prices

Seminar by Dori Levanoni

14th June 2022 – In-Person and On-Line – Hybrid! 

The LQG is very grateful to The London Stock Exchange Group – LSEG – for hosting the first in-person LQG of 2022!

In this seminar Dori Levanoni will discuss Inflation which is how the prices of goods and services in an economy change. Inflation can and does impact the prices of financial assets as well. The types and sources of inflation affect different assets’ prices differently. In this talk, we explore the types and sources of inflation and then with those insights and taxonomy, explore the various impacts on assets’ prices. That knowledge can help guide both strategic and tactical asset allocations for both return and risk improvements. Analysing inflation may seem relatively straightforward, but it is not. It requires a variety of techniques which we will present with the empirical results including the historic impact on asset prices.
