The FINPACK Flyover series provides digestible briefs from a 30,000 foot perspective on broader, macroeconomic issues or events and examines the potential threats / opportunities they may pose to the clients you work with. In the first edition, economist Devin Brand looks at potential impacts of the current uncertainty in global energy markets.

“The uncertainty in energy markets will likely impact your ag clients’ financial positions in some manner, if it has not already.”
