Investment Insights April 2021

New Zealand just passed our one-year lockdown anniversary as a result of the spread of COVID-19 and the sharp drop in investment performance. Since then we’ve seen markets go from strength to strength, with the first quarter of 2021 not being the exception as we saw a positive market reaction to the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines.

Leah Keys, Mercer Investments, shares insights from our team of local and global investment experts in this 2-minute video, covering:

  • The key factors that influenced financial markets in Q1 2021.  
  • The impact of COVID-19 vaccine rollout on local and global markets.
  • Market outlook.
