Financial Outlook

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.

  • The U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) maintained its policy of gradually raising its key rate, bringing it into a range of 2% to 2.25%.
  • Monetary policy also continued to be restrictive in Canada. The Bank of Canada raised its key rate 0.25% in July, bringing it to 1.50%.
  • The United States, Mexico and Canada announced they had reached an new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on September 30, 2018. Even so, the returns on Canadian equities, as measured by the S&P/TSX Index, were negative for the third quarter of the year.
