Optimum Asset Management publishes quarterly financial outlooks which provide an overview of the economy as well as of the bond, Canadian equity, foreign equity and foreign currency markets.
It also contains information on our portfolios based on different economic contexts.
- This summer, the growth of the economy was due mainly to the reopening of the tourism, accommodation and restaurant sectors. Regardless, the health crisis keeps affecting the Western economies.
- The predicted second wave of COVID-19 appears to be on the way and will require new economic support measures from governments.
- Investor uncertainty about the economic trend in the coming months keeps weighting on fixed income performance. At least, all sectors had a positive return, with the exception of long-term bonds, which were down 0.32%. The FTSE Canada Universe Index has returned 8% year to date.
- The TSX Index performed well in the third quarter, advancing 4.73%. Investors are waiting for signs of a sustainable recovery; but it is clear that the economy is not about to bounce back.
