VUCA is a widely recognised acronym meaning volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. It is a military term for mission critical decisions in the fog of war – unknown unknowns. The term aptly describes the year 2020, which has already brought a global pandemic, economic shutdown and equity and market crashes. All this is amplified against the backdrop of a late economic cycle, market fragility and socio-political unrest. In this webinar we will cover seeking alpha in a VUCA world using a three-step approach: resilience, divergent thinking and optionality.
