Global equity markets ended a robust 2019 on a high note, with a strong fourth quarter rally adding to already impressive yearto- date gains. Performance over the last several months of the year was driven mainly by sectors of the market, such as technology and health care, thought to have good long-term growth prospects.

In fixed income markets, solid fourth quarter returns capped off what was a remarkable year across the complex. As in the equity markets, the credit rally appeared buoyed by central banks’ return to highly accommodative policy, which repressed volatility and supported bond returns across the quality spectrum.

With a new year upon us, we remain in uncharted equity and economic waters. In the US, the current bull run has been the longest on record, as has the ongoing economic expansion.

"If you're a long-term investor, it matters less what's happening to the markets as a whole, and matters more what you can find bottom up. At the end of the day, we're not betting on being all into markets. We're selectively buying into markets around the world and I think that's the key distinction."
