In what has already been a very turbulent few years for investors, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has rattled investors to the core. The geopolitical uncertainty making headlines has led to heightened market volatility on an economy which was rebounding from the disruptions of a global pandemic. Now, the prospect of a long-term war leaves more questions than answers. Dr. John C. Hulsman, president and co-founder of John C. Hulsman Enterprises, a prominent global political risk consulting firm, explains how we got here, identifies the biggest risks associated with the conflict, and describes the geopolitical implications of this humanitarian crisis on markets today and in the future.
