Dealing with Market Uncertainty and Volatility

April 14, 2022
2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time

This year has been exceptionally volatile for equities around the world. Several external factors, including the war in Ukraine, the abrupt shift in the Fed’s monetary policy stance, and soaring oil prices, have played roles in unsettling the markets. Collectively, this has resulted in volatile trading activity, a drop in liquidity, and a more challenging environment for capital deployment.

Market volatility is expected to persist, and it signals a need for preparedness from publicly traded companies’ executives and investor relations teams. During times like these, understanding the factors influencing your share price and the impact on your company’s cost of capital is critical. Moreover, proactively finding ways to manage these elevated levels of market uncertainty presents an opportunity for you to differentiate yourself from competitors both in and outside your industry.
