Q2 2022: Disruption: The Far-Reaching Effects of Geopolitical Conflict

Russia’s devastating invasion of Ukraine has caused widespread destruction and a massive humanitarian crisis. Its effects have also rippled far across the globe, with implications for many facets of a highly interconnected world.

This edition of AB IQ will examine three areas disrupted by the conflict. Global supply chains, already strained by the pandemic, are in need of a redesign. The energy sector was hit hard by the conflict, and we believe one effect will be an accelerated transition to renewable energy. And global food insecurity, already an urgent issue, has been exacerbated by the war.

We hope you find that the collection of topics in this edition of AB IQ bring added perspective to the expansive effects of the conflict in Europe—a conflict that we hope soon gives way to peace.
