Fourth Quarter 2019 Review & Outlook

Fourth Quarter 2019 Review & Outlook

Executive Summary

Following a great 2019, it is important to keep healthy expectations. 2020 might not start as strong as 2019 but it doesn’t surprise us that 2020 started slowly as the America’s presidential election is causing political uncertainty. Markets could very well react in the same way as the UK, where returns improved in December as the general election result eased political uncertainty. UK firms can finally stop trying to navigate shifting Brexit deadlines and start launching longer-term endeavours.

Inflation is keeping long-term interest rates low. So, although we don’t expect economic growth to surge, the outlook looks quite positive. 2020 look likely to be good for markets. Although returns may not rival 2019’s, we still expect shares to rise.

2020 Outlook

All in all – guarded optimism but not fear for 2020
