Spring 2019 Economic Commentary
This quarter's investment market review contains two main articles. In the investment market review we summarise some of the key talking points in global markets over the last three months. Despite plenty of negative news headlines (the norm these days!), it was another good quarter for diversified investors. The first article digs a little deeper into two topics – i) how new information gets quickly factored into market prices, and ii) the concerted efforts by global central banks to try to stimulate economic activity by lowering interest rates.
The second article looks at the results of a survey conducted by New York Life, which highlighted the largest financial mistakes that people typically make – both the average age of the mistake (which tends to be in their 30s) and the average time to recover. With any mistake, financial or otherwise, the aim is always to learn from it; not only for our own benefit but also for the benefit of the friends and family we can share our knowledge with.
