First Quarter 2019 – “Bouncing Back”

After selling off late last year, equity markets bounced back and ended the quarter with the S&P 500, MSCI EAFE, and MSCI EM indices posting gains of 13.6%, 10%, and 9.9%, respectively. Concerns over the US-China trade dispute eased and accommodative policies from global central banks proved a potent combination, helping investors to overcome their worries about global growth.
