Welcome to the Markets and Economic Update, provided by the Hancock Whitney Asset Management team as an informational resource for clients and individuals who are interested in hearing our perspectives on current economic issues.

   Markets and Economic Update

 

Paul Teten leads off this month's call with a review of the economy. While we had very robust 2nd and 3rd quarters in 2018, things have certainly slowed down – but to what extent? How do things look for the first quarter of 2019, and what do we expect in terms of global growth?
 
Continuing the topic of global growth, Richard Chauvin talks about what progress has been made with China. He also discusses where we stand with Brexit, what the likely outcome will be and the impact it will have on our economy.
 
The other big news in January was the Fed meeting. The outcome wasn’t a surprise, but the comments afterward got the market excited. Jeff Tanguis gives us a recap of this meeting, the bond market in general, and any movement we are seeing.
 
After a disappointing stock market performance in 4Q 2018, we have seen a reversal so far in 2019 – the best January in 30 years. Martin Sirera gives us the highlights of January and what we can expect to see going forward.
