Investment Insights Podcast: A review of 2017 markets

Leigh Lowman, CFA, Investment Manager

On this week’s podcast (recorded January 5, 2018), Leigh provides a quick review of the markets over the past year.

 

Quick hits:

  • 2017 was quite the year. After a prolonged period of sluggish economic growth, 2017 was marked by synchronized global expansion across all major economies.
  • The S&P 500 Index finished the year up 21.8%.
  • Developed international equities underperformed domestic equities for the fourth quarter but led for the year.
  • Treasuries and government bonds were flat for the quarter as rising 10-year Treasury yields and an additional 25bps Fed rate hike created headwinds for the sectors.
  • We remain positive on risk assets over the intermediate-term.
