    A critical factor impacting the viability of renewables is energy storage. Current energy storage capacity represents just 17% of total installed solar and wind capacity. Energy storage cost has almost halved in the past five years but generally remain too pricey for scale-up applications. In a "red-alert on climate change" scenario, annual renewable energy capacity additions would treble to 500-600GW globally. 15+ UBS analysts, across 6 sector teams globally, examined the status and scenarios for energy storage, with cost cuts and technological advancement indicating energy storage potential is at a tipping point.

    To find standout voices, we used a combination of quantitative and qualitative signals, starting with a custom algorithm from our LinkedIn Data Science team and then curated by our LinkedIn editors. You can learn more about how we compiled the list at the bottom of this article and can check out Top Voices around the world and across industries — from technology to education — here.

    We dug into the data to find standout voices in finance and the economy. This year's cohort include investors, strategists, executives and entrepreneurs across four continents who consistently engage their followers with articles, posts, videos and comments. They bring to the table insight, inspiration and often a healthy dose of wit while sparking conversations around the top financial trends of today and tomorrow.

    Are individuals and institutions feeling bullish about bettering the world? Here’s how sustainable investments aim to benefit their portfolios—and society.

    Imagine it. You’re a smart investor with a portfolio that’s respectable, but you know it could be better. You want the dollars to work hard and yield returns, but to get there, your strategy might need some nuance. You look to put your money into an enterprise with a stable workforce and good reputation; making headlines for doing the right thing. Just a few years ago, some of your industry peers might have said this approach lacked muscle, or an appetite for winning, but in 2019, it’s not the outlier way of doing things. It’s called sustainable investing—which looks at environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to inform investing strategies—and it's increasingly the norm1. So what caused this shift, and why are institutions and individuals recognizing its advantages?

That's one of the key conclusions of the UBS Investor Watch, which surveyed global investors on their outlook for 2020 and beyond. So how should investors position amid this uncertainty?

  • Consumer strength has been the bright spot in the US economy. Today's US employment data is unlikely to change that trend immediately, but job growth must slow down at some point. Listen to Chief Economist Paul Donovan's latest podcast. #shareUBS UBS Fri 06 Dec 2019 11:01
    The US monthly employment report is due on Friday – when markets become frenzied with excitement about a number that is wrong. Since 2018, the change in non-farm payrolls has been revised on average over 39,000 a month. The data should show that employment is still unsustainably strong in the US. At some point, there needs to be a slowdown in jobs growth (or more immigration). Today's average hourly earnings numbers are not wages. Creating low paid jobs lowers average hourly earnings but raises household incomes. Income supports US consumers – durable goods spending accelerated this year. It is just as well there is income growth; two thirds of Americans say they are not affected by the equity market. China has begun to waive trade taxes on Chinese consumers of US pork and soybeans. This comes after China's rapid food price inflation, but investors view it as a positive development in the trade conflict. Less helpfully the US is blocking a loan from the World Bank to...

    In 1999, looking to the future beyond the start of a new millennium, we formed UBS Optimus Foundation ? a client-driven foundation linked to a global wealth manager and staffed with philanthropy experts. With the right experience, knowledge and network to help philanthropists make the most impact in their giving, the foundation has improved health, education and child protection systems for more than10 million children. And today it's celebrating its 20th anniversary in Singapore at the opening of its seventh location.

    US President Trump moved a step closer to impeachment yesterday, with the conclusion of the initial House investigations. This is not a direct focus for markets. Trump's relations with Congress are unlikely to get any worse as a result, and it is too soon to speculate on how this will impact the 2020 election. Yesterday had several trade tweets from US President Trump (it was a bad day for US consumers of champagne and French porcelain napkin rings). Investors disliked the risk that a China trade deal may be delayed beyond the US election; it implies more trade taxes. A tax on trade is a tax on equities. The House passed a bill on Xinjiang that may raise risks around trade negotiations. Is there additional economic risk from trade uncertainty? More taxes would be a drag on growth. But the main damage of US President Trump's trade policy is uncertainty and weaker investment. That damage has already been done. Markets remain vulnerable, but further economic downside...
