Have markets been good this year?
This past year has been somewhat constrained for investors.
In this video, Shane Oliver, Chief Economist and Head of Investment Strategy at AMP Capital, provides a wrap-up of market performance during 2015.
This year has seen constrained market conditions, which for most investors mean returns have not reached levels seen in previous years. However, there has been good news for those with money invested in international shares on an unhedged basis; they benefited from gains in European and Japanese shares, and in the fall of the Australian dollar. Overall, unlisted assets such as infrastructure and commercial property provided better returns than share markets.
