The current world order was thrashed out in the aftermath of World War II. But growing and important economic powers, notably China, did not sign up for this framework and want the world’s economy to work differently. Russia’s attempts to redraw the map of Europe provide further confirmation we have moved into a new paradigm.

This tension is likely to lead to a long-term realignment of the global economy, with new rules and new thinking. It will be a multi-polar world, rather than one focused on the US. This realignment will be felt across defence sectors, technology, supply chains and in the commodities markets.
