January Economic Update

Brian Parker, Head of the Portfolio Specialists Group, gives an update on markets during December.

He discusses:

  • why many world share markets had a fairly weak month, an exception being strong performance by China’s market

  • how Australian shares made solid gains for the month and most asset classes delivered quite good returns to Australian investors for 2014 as a whole

  • why concern has increased about the struggling eurozone economy, especially Greece

  • how the actions of key central banks remain a key influence on markets, and

  • why Australia’s investment environment remains uncertain, despite signs of recovery in the non-mining economy.
