The Staying Power of Global Businesses in an Environment of Extreme Uncertainty
Uncertainty is at exceptional levels. The halt in activity today is unlike slowdowns we’ve seen before, and it’s affecting companies in a variety of ways. Our co-CIO John Goetz and portfolio manager Allison Fisch discuss our efforts to understand what bad looks like, company by company, and the research necessary to evaluate if companies can survive a prolonged downturn.
