Quarterly Market Review – 4th Quarter 2016

Dear Clients and Friends:

We hope the new year is off to a great start for everyone.

2017 will be the third year we produce our Quarterly Market Review and we hope you find the information interesting and useful. Click here to read the review.

This quarter’s market review features graphs combining the world stock market performance (based on the MSCI ACWI index) with timelines of selected news headlines. These graphs cover both the past quarter and the past year.

The market review also features returns of stock and bond market asset classes in both US and international markets and provides returns for globally diversified portfolios that can be used as performance benchmarks.

Finally, this quarter’s market review features an article titled “The Power of Markets”. The article uses an essay by the economist Leonard Read about all of the market-related factors that go into making a pencil to drive home our view that attempting to outguess the market is foolish and leads to a high probability of underperformance.

We hope you find the content informative and useful. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Warm Regards,
Berkson Asset Management, Inc.
