Adaptation in Motion

Setting out a New Way Forward




Despite ongoing geopolitical tensions, 2024 should see the volatility and uncertainty of recent years yield to adaptation. Monetary policy should normalise as the growth versus inflation dilemma abates. Meanwhile, societies will work to absorb the technological revolution that AI is accelerating. Decarbonising all the world’s economies is urgent—yet global energy transition still faces major hurdles. The next Amundi World Investment Forum will explore how policymakers, financial services and investors can meet these challenges.
