In Short

Our December Podcast-Interview with Vincent Chaigneau, Head of Research at Generali Investments

Investors face two key headwinds, Omicron and more hawkish central banks. Vincent Chaigneau, Head of Research at Generali Investments, explains why he is losing more sleep on the latter than the former. He recommends to run nimble positions for now, with a focus on hedges and barbelling Value with defensive stocks.
