Leigh Lowman, CFA, Investment Manager
On this week’s podcast (recorded September 8, 2017), Leigh provides a quick review of August markets.
- In a historically seasonally weak month, risk assets exhibited weaker performance in August.
- Global economies continued to stay the course on the path to recovery with both consumer and business confidence and macroeconomic data remaining positive.
- We expect that the upcoming actions in Washington may serve as a catalyst for a pickup in volatility, which has been notably absent year to date.
- However, more volatile periods can often lead to attractive market opportunities.
