The Inflation Equation: What it means for CEOs

cash flow forecasting chart

Inflation is top of mind for everyone currently — from Washington to every city across the United States. It seems to be a looming concern that just isn’t going away. In fact, the latest UBS Investor Sentiment survey shows that 92% of owners believe that inflation will accelerate at a faster or similar pace over the next 12 months.

During this webinar, UBS’s Chief Investment Officer will address key questions regarding the inflation equation, including what the potential effects inflation may have on business owners, CEOs and management teams. We’ll also help members anticipate adjustments, providing guidance and advice on strategies owners may consider using to mitigate the effects of inflation—or better yet, explore ways that can help owners see potential opportunities in an inflationary market.
