Segal Marco’s Q1 update to our 2017 Investment Outlook helps you put the optimism we are seeing in the markets in perspective by providing our near-term views on the world’s economies and the performance of specific asset classes.
Over the next 12 to 18 months, we expect:
- Equity returns in developed markets to be positive and attractive
- A general pattern of low rates with some modest upward pressure likely resulting in fixed-income returns below long-term expectations
- The liquidity premium and active return enhancement on the more illiquid or so-called private asset classes to be still available in many areas, but investing should be highly selective at this point
