Financial markets have got off to a shaky start in 2016. Will the woes continue?

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

By David McDonald

Chief Investment Strategist Australia, Private Banking & Wealth Management

Financial markets have got off to a shaky start in 2016. Will the woes continue? Should we “sell everything” as some have suggested or are global fundamentals more positive than markets are implying?

The US Fed has begun to hike interest rates – will they continue and if so what are the implications? Is the European recovery still on track?

What is happening in China? Are financial market gyrations a sign of underlying problems?

And importantly what does this mean for Australia. Will the AUD fall to lower levels, are commodity prices ever going to recover?

David will discuss all of these issues and more in his presentation as well as providing a review of financial markets over the past year. Click here for more information on his presentation.

A Positive Year Ahead: Newton Soares reflects on David McDonald's recent presentation

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Newton Soares, Moir Group's Business Manager, Banking and Financial Services

Read Newton's reflections on David McDonald's speech .  David is the Chief Investment Strategist, Australia at Credit Suisse AG and spoke at our Moir Group event last week on "Challenges facing the Australian and global economy in 2015".

"Listening to David McDonald's views on the challenges our economy is facing certainly highlighted many positives for the year ahead. What I took away was that the key driver behind the economy is having a “happy nation” i.e. If you are happy, you spend more, businesses increase revenue, expand, hire more people and this drives the economy.

What unfortunately is preventing us from “being happy” is a “lack of consumer & business confidence”. It is confusing, when Australia is in a much healthier position than most of the world.

David compared us to Continental Europe with double digit unemployment, interest rates below 1%, lack of growth and serious regional issues in Russia & Ukraine.

David highlighted that in Australia we have relatively low unemployment rates, our houses have all increased in value and our economy is still growing at a faster rate than most developed countries. 

He also noted the significant drop in petrol prices, effectively equivalent to a tax cut, and a further reduction in interest rates by the RBA mean we should have more disposable income. I am sure most people in Continental Europe would love to swap places with us without a second thought.

So the question is, what is creating the lack of consumer & business confidence?

At the Commonwealth Bank's recent HY Profit announcement, CEO Ian Narev made reference to the Federal government needing to have a clearer plan that is clearly communicated.  He commented:

"Businesses need the certainty to invest to create jobs, and households need a greater feeling of security. That requires implementation of a coherent long-term plan that clearly addresses target government debt levels and time-frames, infrastructure priorities, foreign investment, business competitiveness policies and, above all, job creation."

I’ve always used recruitment as an indicator of how the economy is travelling.  When the economy is poor, recruitment volumes drop and head count freezes are common.  We haven’t seen any of this at Moir Group.  As accounting recruitment specialists we had a record 2014 revenue year and January 2015 has been exceptionally busy.

In summary, I walked away from David’s presentation with optimism and renewed belief that we are in a strong position for growth.  I remain positive about the year ahead."

If you are interested in this topic, Stephen Walters, Chief Economist at JP Morgan will speak on the same theme at our North Ryde event this Thursday.  Limited tickets still available. Register on our events page
