In 2023, stocks and 60/40 portfolios had higher returns than in 2022, while bonds remained virtually steady. There are, of course, many tricky market and economic issues at play. Interest rates are close to 16-year highs, the Federal Reserve has a “higher for longer” focus, and the effects of higher borrowing costs are being felt. Much of consumers’ extra savings have been tapped, and student loan payments restarted.

In this webcast, we’ll discuss current market conditions and their impact on different asset classes – including alternative investments – as well as the historic and expected risks and returns of these investments.

Join this complimentary webcast to get up to speed on how different asset classes are performing in 2023 and how they might perform in 2024. You’ll learn:

  • What the latest investment trends are and how they can affect your clients’ portfolios

  • How to evaluate the current correlations between asset classes and their expected risks and returns

  • What lies ahead for traditional assets and investment vehicles, as well as new alternative assets
