SPG Forum – Keynote: Living with Covid-19 – The Economic Outlook

Trevor will be speaking on Monday 16 November, 10:20–11:20 am at the 2020 SPG Forum to be held virtually from the 16 – 20 November 2020

Session Description: The effects of COVID-19 are everywhere. Recovery is underway but will remain weak for some time – essentially until a vaccine or a clutch of treatments is found. A return to an economy with 90% of its previous level of output rather than to 100% of it. In other words, some of the economy’s current capacity will be permanently lost as a result of the pandemic. We have record low rates and a surge in public sector debt. This has implications for corporate failures, which are likely to rise, and higher unemployment, which will increase bankruptcies. The only thing we can be certain about is greater uncertainty. So, what indicators to watch out for? Trevor Williams will focus on these in a look at the economy and capital markets.

The UK’s Economic Outlook Post Brexit

The UK will have to navigate its exit from the EU and look to the challenges and opportunities that come from dealing with its low productivity and ageing population.

To do this will require fixing its housing market, decentralising from Westminster, facing the rest of the world more proactively, and harnessing all its labour skills and resources more flexibly.

Supportive monetary and fiscal policy will be a necessary part of this process, as the UK faces a period of transition.

A conference to explore external influences currently facing charity trustees and executives, including global economic trends, pressures on donors, changing legal frameworks and investment strategies.

The world is currently changing rather fast, with many extraordinary constitutional, political and social changes over the past year. How do people like charity trustees, who need to take very long term views, make sense of this extreme shorter term ‘noise’ – and understand the underlying implications of the longer term global trends? — Trevor Williams
