Market volatility and the Russia-Ukraine conflict

In this special edition of the Merrill Perspectives podcast, Chris Hyzy, Chief Investment Officer for Merrill and Bank of America Private Bank, speaks with a group of experts about what could come next.


Chris is joined first by Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and GZERO media, on the geopolitical implications. That’s followed by his conversation with Savita Subramanian and Ethan Harris, both with BofA Global Research, who share their perspective on what the crisis could mean for the U.S. and global economies, the equity markets and investment risks and opportunities.
