Q3 2017 Outlook

Q3 2017 Outlook

Segal Marco’s Q3 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:

  • U.S. equity to remain neutral, with slightly higher-than-long-term assumed returns for international large and small cap developed equity and for emerging market equity.
  • Below normal returns for U.S. and non-U.S. core bonds, but believe that emerging market debt and private credit are likely to provide returns modestly above expectations.
  • Heightened competition for high-quality assets, which puts a premium on both implementation and having exceptional asset managers in place.
