January 2015 Quarterly Strategic Outlook

  • Low inflation to dominate 2015 global landscape as growth diverges
  • Oil presents upside risk for growth but Japan, Europe and China still on watch
  • Bonds and their substitutes show surprising strength in 2014; expect modest reversal
  • Emerging market valuation discount not as large on second look
  • Kiwi needs to adjust further against USD to offset weaker EUR and JPY
  • Global commodity price correction now overdone?

The December quarter and year was a rewarding one for diversified fund investors. Fixed interest produced healthy returns on the back of some softer global activity data, increased asset purchases from the Bank of Japan, a sharp decline in oil prices and associated lower inflation expectations.
