MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 29, 2016) – As investors look ahead to 2017 and try to determine the best opportunities for growth in their portfolios, there are many considerations to take into account in the postelection era.
RBC Wealth Management’s Global Insight 2017 Outlook showcases the firm’s analysts’ unique perspectives and highlights compelling opportunities for investors in the year ahead. The report provides insights into U.S. equities, fixed income, oil, European equities and Canadian equities.
“The dramatic leadership change in Washington will help shape U.S. equity market returns and sector leadership in early 2017 and possibly at other points throughout the year,” said Janet Engels, Director of RBC Wealth Management’s Portfolio Advisory Group. “Investors need to consider that benefits from Trump’s fiscal stimulus also come with new risks and the potential for heightened market volatility.”
“The message for investors is that the Fed remains accommodative, even in the midst of a policy of gradually raising rates,” said Craig Bishop, Lead Strategist, U.S. Fixed Income Strategies at RBC Wealth Management. “This progression to higher interest rates and steeper yield curves should continue into early 2017 as markets adjust to gradually tighter Fed policy and a semblance of stability in global markets.”
