If you were hoping for a smooth ride through 2016, you’re unlikely to get your wish. That and more from HSBC Asset Management’s 2016 investment outlook.


  • The global economic environment is likely to remain in a fragile equilibrium, one where global growth and inflation both remain relatively low, with potential periodic scares triggering bouts of stock market volatility.

  • Fixed-income returns will be similar to what we’ve seen in 2015, with low to mid-single-digit returns across bond segments.
  • A combination of factors will continue to push U.S rates higher in the coming year.
