Making the most of your US dollars
This week, we at Bourse consider some of the options available to investors with access to US dollars. With the announcement of several new initiatives to raise revenue and/or curb expenditure in the FY2017 National Budget, it would seem that the TT dollar investment landscape is set to undergo some adjustment in the near term. Changes to taxation policies, lower government spending and other factors will increase economic uncertainty, which should filter into both local equity and bond markets. Investors with US dollars, then, may want to consider looking outward to generate positive returns and increase diversification away from the local economy.
