First Quarter Review of Asset Allocation

April 16, 2019

Heading into 2019, the primary risks facing financial markets were the trade war with China, the U.S. government shutdown, Brexit uncertainty, and further Fed rate hikes. However, in the first quarter the majority of these worries subsided.

In this newsletter, we analyze the current market environment with a review of recent performance and future expectations for each major asset class. As always, we caution investors to stay diversified and rebalance as appropriate. There are always potential disruptors to the financial markets and the most powerful tend to be largely unexpected. We will continue to monitor markets and developments as they occur to guide our clients to the most optimal portfolio decisions given the backdrop of program goals and risk tolerance.
