IN THIS EDITION OF OUR QUARTERLY MARKET REVIEW WE PROVIDE DATA AND ANALYSIS ACROSS MARKETS AND INVESTMENTS.

We also share an article that advises long-term investors on how to react to a volatile market and potential recession.

“With activity in many industries sharply curtailed in an effort to reduce the chances of spreading the coronavirus, some economists say a recession is inevitable if one hasn’t already begun.1 From a market perspective, we have already experienced a drop in stocks, as prices have likely incorporated the growing chance of recession. Investors may be tempted to abandon equities and go to cash because of perceptions of recessions and their impact. But across the two years that follow a recession’s onset, equities have a history of positive performance.”

 

This report features world capital market performance and a timeline of events for the past quarter. It begins with a global overview, then features the returns of stock and bond asset classes in the US and international markets.

The report also illustrates the impact of globally diversified portfolios and features a quarterly topic: Long-Term Investors, Don’t Let a Recession Faze You
