Geopolitical Risks That Could Potentially Impact Portfolios In 2022

The recent U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan will have an impact on geopolitical considerations in U.S. foreign policy and national security strategy, particularly with our global neighbors from China, Russia, Iran, and the European Union.
