Segal Rogerscasey Canada Sees an Accommodating Economy for the Rest of 2018

(2/28/18) —  Segal Rogerscasey Canada’s 2018 Investment Outlook discusses the market signals that are driving asset classes — and how investors can protect their portfolios.

“Economic growth in Canada continued at a solid pace in Q4 2017, with GDP growth for the year expected to be 3.0 percent,” said Ruo Tan, President of Segal Rogerscasey Canada. He added, “Potential clouds over the Canadian economy include the NAFTA renegotiation and the effect of rising interest rates on consumer debt and housing prices. Despite the rate increases in 2017, though, overall financial conditions remain accommodative.”

Over the next 12 to 18 months, Segal Rogerscasey Canada expects to see:

  • Continued outperformance in international and emerging market equities, and
  • Solid returns in emerging market debt and private credit, with other areas of fixed income at or below long-term expectations.
