2019 Market Outlook

January 2019

Many narratives have yet to unfold in 2019, including the effect of a divided U.S. government on domestic economic decisions, the impact of international trade tensions as a result of tariffs, and overall global economic growth that may be decelerating.

With all these moving parts in play, we’ve entitled this issue of our 2019 Outlook, “Pushing Forward,” which promotes the idea that powering through the market’s dips and turns will require superior investment savvy along the way. 2019 will be a year to consult with your investment advisor and to rebalance portfolio assets as appropriate.
