2019 Market Outlook Webinar Replay 

NEPC held a recent webinar on January 24, 2019. During the presentation, Phillip NelsonChristopher Levell, and KC Connors reviewed key market themes and opportunities for 2019.




Our annual letter provides NEPC’s longer-term perspectives and NEPC’s market outlook. Winter is coming, but when?

Economies and capital markets, like the seasons, follow a pattern of change. As many know, these changes can be gentle or harsh, gradual or abrupt, like an unexpected blizzard in November followed by a string of 50-degree days in December. Unfortunately for investors, while the change in seasons is bound by the earth’s tilt, the changes to economic and market cycles are not, making them much harder to predict and plan for.

Fourth quarter MARKET THOUGHTS

Our Quarterly Market Thoughts delves deeper into recent market events. The new year couldn’t come quickly enough for investors. Not only did most major asset classes end 2018 in the red, but also US equities suffered their worst December since the 1930s. This wave of risk aversion was felt broadly as safe-haven fixed income rallied with Treasury yields declining in the final weeks of last year.
