Investment Insights July 2019

With the markets starting out strongly in the first quarter of 2019, the second quarter ended with a rocky ride. In our previous edition of the Investment Insights we heard from Philip Houghton-Brown and Leah Keys discussing the driving forces behind strong market recovery in the first quarter of 2019.    

Watch an interview with Robert Kavanagh and Brian Kearney discussing:

• What’s behind the recent volatility in the share market

• Performance of Mercer’s funds in the second quarter of 2019

• How did political unrest and trade tensions impact the global share markets

• Impact on New Zealand markets from falling interest rates

• Outlook for the rest of the year

Mercer’s team of experts based in 40 countries around the globe, including New Zealand, monitor global and local events and bring you the latest updates.  We also produce an investment report each month covering the Mercer KiwiSaver scheme, Mercer Super Trust and Mercer FlexiSaver, which includes returns for each of the seven funds.
