The Portfolio Construction Podcast

Mar 12, 2024

In 2023, investors saw strong returns in equity, fixed interest, and cash markets. The question for 2024 is whether these strong returns will continue.

In this episode of the Portfolio Construction podcast, Paul O’Connor, Head of Investment at Netwealth, interviews David Bassanese, Chief Economist at Betashares, about his economic view on the Australian dollar, equity and emerging markets, interest rates, and inflation. They discuss investment implications, key risks, and potential disruptions to the 2024/25 outlook, including effects on energy supply due to tensions in the Middle East, a sell-off in the bond market due to fears of the US budget deficit, and a more substantial slowing in consumer spending.
