This morning in Davos, Switzerland, Afsaneh appeared on Davos Today, Reuters flagship breakfast show anchored by Editor-at-Large Axel Threlfall. Interviewed alongside John Tuttle (COO, NYSE), she reviewed the volatility that characterized markets in 2018 and looked ahead to opportunities in 2019 and beyond. Afsaneh said there is a chance of stagflation toward the end of 2019 and estimated that the Fed may raise rates twice. Over the long run, she said, emerging markets’ financial sectors will continue to leapfrog those of advanced nations as they develop marketplaces from the ground up.
