3rd Quarter 2015 Investment Landscape

A variety of important developments occurred in the second quarter of 2015:

  • The US economy continued steadily towards normalization. Positive economic progress, coupled with other policy-related factors, appear to be increasing the probability of US rate rises later this year
  • Small cap equities continued to outperform large cap. This behavior ties into the US economic story
  • Strengthening of the US dollar took a pause, while international markets displayed further progress
  • The problems in Greece continue to affect the Eurozone, but short-term repercussions may be more political in nature. Opportunities still exist in Japan despite recent strong performance
