Update: Market volatility and the Russia-Ukraine conflict

In this episode of the Merrill Perspectives podcast, Chris Hyzy, Chief Investment Officer for Merrill and Bank of America Private Bank, checks back in with Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media, for his insights on the latest geopolitical developments and whether any progress is in sight toward a possible resolution.


Chris continues the conversation with Michael Hartnett, Chief Investment Strategist at BofA Global Research, on how the situation is affecting global financial markets, including oil and other commodities, as well as equities and fixed income — and any positive signs investors could be watching for from here.
