Second Quarter 2017 Investment Outlook
- Equity markets built on gains from 2016 and delivered strong performance in the first quarter of 2017. However, there were several notable changes in performance leadership.
- Technology is a driver of economic value across sectors, facilitating innovation, efficiency and cost reductions.
- Perhaps nowhere is the effect of technology on environmental stewardship more apparent than in renewable energy. And possibly no facet of our lives is more affected by technology than healthcare.
- The drivers of many environmental and other sustainability-related markets are economic, not political. Innovation and advances in technology factor into those economic drivers alongside many long-term investment fundamentals.
