Market Commentary provides a general overview of topical market and economic issues, written by our Head of Investment Strategy, John Wyn-Evans. Here's an excerpt from the latest issue:
"The MSCI All-Countries World Index rose more than 7% over the first seventeen trading days of the year. Traders were looking forward to synchronised global growth of around 4% for the year ahead, the first such burst of consistency since the financial crisis, and Donald Trump had just pushed through a series of tax cuts which provided a strong boost to US corporate earnings. Much of the feeling of political uncertainty that was prevalent a year earlier had subsided."
