While the election has dominated recent headlines, the markets have continued to climb out of the Covid-recession.  There have been winners and losers, and many of the winners have been companies focused on disruption and innovation. But will innovators continue to boom in the next year, or will returns normalize as the economy recovers?  In this webinar, the experts from Invesco will walk through how they’re helping redefine what it means to invest in innovation, and our market outlook for 2021. 

In this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • The interconnection between monetary policy and innovation
