Topic Synopsis: Finding value in an uncertain world
After several decades of political and economic stability, we face a more uncertain world. Markets have given investors a volatile ride over recent years and across the generations, investors are facing the same challenge of trying to save for retirement in a low return market environment. As we move through the second half of 2017, there is something askew. Should stocks and bonds be rising at the same time? And which market is foreshadowing the true outlook for the global economy? Ritu will explore the key challenges in the current market environment and highlight some attractive pockets of opportunity that are available for investors today. In an uncertain world, does fortune favour the active?
