OUR THOUGHTS

2019 OUTLOOK. BUCKLE UP


It is increasingly looking like the industry will need to buckle up in 2019, but whether the current conditions are due to an area of turbulence or because the cycle is moving from cruise to descent mode remains to be seen. The presence of fog around some geo-political relationships and in parts of the global economy make determination of the future even more challenging than usual. Nevertheless, a selection of predictions will follow at the end of this traditional New Year commentary.

INDUSTRY RECOGNITION


We’re proud of the recognition we have achieved within our industry. It underscores our amibition to build the global leader in our sector and continue to push boundaries in all that we do.
