2023 was a volatile year for the global equity markets, with a regional U.S. banking crisis in the beginning of the year and interest rates driving market behaviour throughout the year. However, the global equity markets finished on a high note as the US Federal Reserve held off on further rate hikes. This pause released a pressure valve on stock valuations as interest rates have been a key driver of market direction in recent times.
We recently caught up with Jason Teh, Chief Investment Officer at Vertium Asset Management to discuss his main observations of the markets in 2023, the key performance drivers for the Vertium Equity Income Fund, and the indicators he is closely monitoring for the upcoming year.
