December 18, 2023


Bloomberg Radio sits down with Amol Dhargalkar to discuss 2024 market dynamics and the discrepancy between what the Fed is saying and what the market is interpreting regarding interest rate cuts.

In a tumultuous year marked by inflation and rising interest rates, there have been many predictions of a U.S. recession. Amidst these challenges, investors are looking for opportunities to get more creative with their capital structure.

"We're advising them [investors] to have a robust capital plan that works in all market environments and that is ready for contingencies."

When contemplating potential challenges for companies in 2024, investors should look at current environmental factors and determine where there is opportunity to proactively manage risk. Sometimes companies are not concerned with commodity prices and oil prices when they are low. Examining commodities and oil prices may present a viable strategy for diversifying investment portfolios.

"A concern that CFOs and CEOs and Boards should have right now is that they are probably in an era of abundance with respect to oil supply. Companies tend to take that for granted. An area of focus that we are seeing is proactive CFOs really pushing and coming up with strong commodity hedging plans.
