Every year we close off the JSE Power Hour series with Simon Brown looking ahead to the next year and what he expects to see in local and global markets and economies.
2022 started with lots of expectations as we started moving beyond the pandemic. But the war in Ukraine, rampant inflation and rising rates globally set a very different scene that has seen major exchanges in a bear market.
Simon first marks his previous year’s predictions before setting out how he sees 2023.
Areas covered will include inflation, commodities, currencies, stocks and sectors worth investing in as well as the current political situation and its potential impact on markets and the Rand.

The JSE Power Hour started in 2011 with top industry experts presenting to private investors on financial issues closest to their heart. Power Hours were live presentations in Johannesburg, Durban or Cape Town and broadcast online. However, due to Covid-19 the Power Hours now take place virtually.
