2017 Q1 Global Markets Outlook - Link to PDF


Global markets continued rallying in the first quarter of 2017 with the MSCI All Country World Index returning 6.9%.i We believe the strength in Q1 is a continuation of the trend that started last year, an initial surge as this bull market enters its final third—typically an acceleration phase. This implies not only robust returns in 2017, but plenty of bull market ahead.
