CAPITAL REVIEW

2023 Quarter 3

In Q3 2023, equity markets, represented by the ACWI Index, witnessed a decline of 3.4%. However, they have surged 11.2% YTD as of October 10, 2023. Major indexes like the S&P 500, MSCI EAFE, and MSCI Emerging Markets all experienced a downtrend between 3% to 4% in USD terms. The decline in US stocks was primarily attributed to the rise in longer-term bond yields. This surge was a result of robust economic data and the Federal Reserve's upward revision of its interest rate outlook for 2024. On the international front, equities fell due to the combination of increasing yields and weaker economic data from Europe and China.
