2021 State of the Global Retail Markets

With the pandemic outbreak starting roughly one year ago, our February Committee meeting will have a comparative look at the state of the global retail markets in 2020 and 2021. Where do we stand after a year of lockdowns, the start of vaccinations and political challenges in terms of GDP, unemployment, consumer confidence, potential recovery timelines and how these factors directly and indirectly affect the global markets?

GRI Club's Global Committees set the professional standard for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing in order to identify new trends, capitalise on growth opportunities and aid dealflow discovery worldwide.

Curated purely by members, spanning 80+ countries, and across all asset classes, each global committee meets once per month via zoom to share current sentiment, investment appetite and debate where the market is going.
