Top 3 geopolitical risks hindering global economic growth

From the war in Ukraine to ongoing conflicts all over the Middle East, geopolitical risks to global economic growth have caused investors to look for ways to best optimize their portfolios in case of further escalation.
PwC Principal and Geopolitical Investing Practice Global Head Alexis Crow to identify the biggest geopolitical risks and the best ways for investors to optimize their portfolios to take advantage of these situations.
Crow elaborates on 3 things to consider in today’s geopolitical environment, the first being ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and how it is affecting oil prices, and then: “Number two is the extent to which the tension between the United States and China is driving a fragmentation of global supply chain activity. So that’s actually moving a lot of exporters and manufacturers to move from… just in case to just in time mentality. So that’s also driving up pricing. I would say that the extent to which that also is creating opportunities is one to consider.”
