About the Program
The capital markets have been on a historic run since the financial crisis, and returns during 2017 did not disappoint. And yet, recent volatility in February has caused some investors to question the future return landscape. How will the next few years play out? Bernstein provides their outlook based on the economic and corporate fundamentals as they see them today.
