World Interest Rates and the Local Investor
This week, we at Bourse discuss a subtle yet important development in the global investment landscape, specifically the diverging path of interest rates in major emerging and developed investment regions. While some of the major developed, low-growth economies seem to be on the cusp of increasing interest rates, emerging markets with higher growth trends are now doing just the opposite.
The direction of interest rates is a signal to investors on the outlook for economic growth and can play a vital role in general market sentiment. We explore some of the recent and upcoming international monetary policy decisions and their impact on global markets.
