It has become clear that 2022 marked the end of an era in which ultra-low interest rates and unprecedented central-bank stimulus drove strong gains for the prices of risky assets. The post-2022 market regime has so far been characterised by shakier economic growth, inflationary pressures, higher interest rates, and more restrictive monetary policy.
