News about ANZ

The situation in Ukraine is evolving and things are changing quickly, so investors should expect ongoing volatility in financial markets. Despite the markets’ sharp fall on news of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, they have since recovered some of their losses. With Russia being a key exporter of oil, gas, and other commodities, broad-based sanctions can potentially impact supply chains, which could worsen inflationary pressures.
