- This quarter there was a three-way tie for the topic area covered most frequently by content authors within our Top 100 list of Q1. Papers on the debt and credit outlook, ESG and ethical investing, and the global economic outlook each appeared 25 times on this list.
- The Top 100 list features a number of papers written about inflation and inflation expectations, a topic that influences both global economics and the outlook for debt/credit markets. The spike in this content was largely driven by inflation in the United States and elsewhere rising to levels not seen since the 1980s.
- The most popular paper of the quarter was a Special Report titled ‘2022 Investment Outlook: The new abnormal?’ This collection of annual outlook papers received almost 2,000 views during Q1, beating the second most popular paper by over 400 views. Although this report was released in late January, Savvy Investor still recommends that content providers release their annual outlooks as early as possible, in order to remain relevant for longer and to avoid going live when the market is already saturated with annual outlook content.
