Crash in instalments

The financial markets suffered a crash in instalments during the fourth quarter, turning 2018 into one of the worst investment years since the financial crisis ten years ago. Hardly any asset class managed to deliver a positive return contribution. This was in spite of the economic environment not being so dire.

On the surface of it, the summer months passed rather quietly.

Trump against the Rest of the World

The calm is over. While investors, particularly those in equities, once again relished a fair tailwind in January, February saw them being overswept by a cold front and rudely brought back to reality with a thump. International trade disputes as well as rising interest rates have put an end to the stock exchange party for the present. However, the economic environment continues to remain positive, which should help markets.

2017 will enter the history books as a good year for financial investors. Equities played a major part in this, but gold and hedge funds also managed to turn in a pleasing performance. It was by courtesy of bonds that the party was not spoiled. The economic outlook is good, supporting financial markets. Investors, however, are worried about high valuations.
