Investment perspectives for financial markets in 2017

Video published on 19/12/2016

In 2017, improved global economic growth perspectives will be juxtaposed by the reduced expansionary dynamism of central banks and expensive asset valuations. Whilst the United States will continue to raise the Fed funds rate, in Europe the European Central Bank will progressively scale back its asset purchasing programme throughout the year, in an environment in which the valuations of bonds and equity will be “expensive”. In this environment, the investment scenario will be characterised by moderate returns and high volatility. Antonio Saiz, Customer Strategy Manager, explains the investment perspectives for financial markets in 2017.
