“2018 Economic and market outlook: Rising risks to the status quo”.  


What could be in store for global financial markets in 2018 and beyond? Strong market returns and low volatility underscore investors’ conviction that the current environment of modest growth and tepid inflation is here to stay, Vanguard Investment Strategy Group finds in its annual economic and market outlook. Although this long-term prognosis may hold true, the chances of a short-term cyclical rebound—and the implications for monetary policy and investment returns—are underappreciated. The risks, therefore, lie in mistaking persistent trends for the 2018 cycle. 


Andrew J. Patterson, CFA, is a senior economist in Vanguard Investment Strategy Group, where he leads the team charged with developing and communicating Vanguard’s economic and market outlook.  He has co-authored research on a number of topics, including the global economy, fixed income, and asset allocation while also providing support for various investment management initiatives, including the Vanguard Capital Markets Model®.

Mr. Patterson joined Vanguard in 2002. He earned a B.S. in finance with a minor in economics from The Pennsylvania State University and an M.B.A. from Villanova University. He is a CFA® charterholder.
