Q4 2017 Market Review

Markets in Review: Gains for Most Asset Classes

Compare your investment results to our Q4 2017 benchmarks for stocks, bonds and alternative investments.

World equity markets, U.S. equity and non-U.S. fixed income gained last quarter while U.S. fixed income was barely positive as the Federal Reserve raised interest rates again in December.

We take an in-depth look at the performance of these asset classes, along with developments investors may want to pay attention to, including:

  • Yield curve as a leading indicator of recession
  • Market timing can be difficult and costly
  • Evaluating growth vs. value in emerging markets
