(c) Erste Asset Management

2017 is drawing to an end, and the bottom line is positive. The outcome is significantly better than we had expected.

It is almost impossible to speak with fund managers and not address the economy or monetary policy. Why is that so? This blog entry will try to answer the question on the basis of data from the US equity market from 1950 onwards.

Fed supports markets

The US central bank signalled the continuation of its loose monetary policy at its FOMC meeting on 27 April.
