Prepare for landing…please make sure your personal assets are properly secured and company balance sheets are in the upright and pristine position.

Will the economy experience a soft landing, as the Federal Reserve is suggesting, or will stubborn inflation and rising interest rates cause the economic landing to be a bit bumpy and experience a recession?

In 2023, the Federal Reserve will continue to battle inflation and hike interest rates reaching its terminal rate in the first half of the year, as inflation slowly dissipates. This will cause economic activity to slow, perhaps to a recession-like pace and cause financial markets to be choppy. We think the economic landing will be bumpy, experiencing a short-lived, mild recession.

Prepare for landing…buckle up.
