It’s incredibly difficult to escape the uncertainty that has cloaked financial markets throughout 2019. Yet, despite the unknown, global markets continue to grow, riding on the coattails of one of the strongest stock market performances in a decade.
As 2019 draws to a close and we prepare to enter a new decade, it’s only natural that investors start looking to what the future will bring. The themes discussed at our Investment Committee include:
- General Election
- Monetary policy
- Trade tensions between the US and China
- US impeachment hearings
- Global growth
Sentiment has improved over the last month, with growth expectations improving significantly. This momentum is set to continue into 2020, thanks to a likely trade deal, accommodative monetary policy, a better-than-expected earnings season and low growth expectations (which should ease some of the pressure on Central Banks from raising rates too soon).
With the Federal Reserve now holding interest rates where they are after another cut in October, it seems like it might be on the cusp of pulling off a soft landing – a smooth cooling down of the economy after a period of significant expansion. This would be good news.
But there’s still uncertainty on the global horizon, which makes understanding your investment choices and making the best decisions to meet your goals, rather difficult.
It can take a lot of time, knowledge and skill to make the right investment decisions for your financial situation, appetite for risk and time frame. Especially when you’re investing for the long-term.
Whilst we at Moneyfarm believe that you shouldn’t respond to every twist and turn on the global stage by adjusting the investments in your portfolio, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be monitoring global events daily. One of the greatest skills a portfolio manager has is knowing when to take advantage of global opportunities and and when to minimise risk.
Luckily, it’s possible for investors to make confident, stress-free investment decisions to build a more financially secure future against a backdrop of uncertainty, thanks to digital wealth managers like Moneyfarm.
