Read our view on the economy and key drivers of change in the global equity markets.

From a market risk perspective, we remain concerned about the influence passive investments, such as ETFs and index funds, could have on stock prices in a volatile market.

Clay Brethour, President

As we move into the 2nd half of 2017, we take a look at the global equity markets and the drivers of change that could move the markets in one direction or another. We also outline potential Central Bank and Federal Reserve policy changes that could affect the financial markets later this year.

From pending legislation in the U.S. to upcoming international elections, we give our outlook on the industry and how it might affect you in 2017.

  • Pro-growth legislation changes would be viewed positively by the equity markets.
  • The Central Bank’s plan to slowly shrink their balance sheet is anticipated to start in September 2017.
  • A comprehensive tax reform or an infrastructure spending bill could create a strong market finish into the end of the year.
