This Weekly Market Update from Gallagher Fiduciary Advisors, LLC revisits key investment headlines from last week:
- U.S. stocks endured a turbulent year, stomaching a 10% correction in early-February, then rebounding to new all-time highs through Q3 before plummeting by double-digits in Q4
- International stocks came under pressure all year, hampered by cooling economic growth prospects around the globe, concerns about trade battles and weakening currencies relative to the U.S. dollar
- Pressured by rising interest rates and widening corporate credit spreads for most of the year, the broad Bloomberg Barclays Aggregate Index clawed its way back from a negative start to finish with a flat return for the year
