A market performance and asset class commentary.
Written by Patryk Dyjecinski

Our Q3 Market review is now available for download. Each quarter we share a market performance and asset class commentary with data provided by Dimensional Fund Advisors. The aim of the Review is to give you a general overview of what has happened in the financial world over the last three months and the impact this may have had on your investments. 

As a Clara Wealth Management client, we would also conduct a regular performance review and an assessment of whether your specific portfolio continues to be suitable to your goals.

The key takeaways for the third quarter were that:

  • Returns were positive in the UK and across developed equity markets but negative across emerging equity markets in pound sterling terms.
  • Value stocks underperformed growth stocks in developed markets but outperformed in emerging markets.
  • Small caps outperformed large caps in Europe and the UK but underperformed in developed markets outside of Europe and the UK. Small caps outperformed large caps in emerging markets.
  • UK stocks underperformed global stock markets.
  • Longer-term bonds generally underperformed shorter-term bonds. 
  • Lower quality corporate bonds generally outperformed higher quality among short and intermediate-term bonds but underperformed among longer-term bonds.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The value of investments may go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest.
