Aggressive CHF - April 2024


April marked the end of five consecutive months of positive returns on the equity market. High inflation, rising interest rates, a declining economy and heightened geopolitical risks dampened investors’ enthusiasm. Good corporate results were not enough to offset the above-mentioned headwinds. Globally, share prices fell by 3.4% over the month, halving the year-to-date performance (4%). US and European share prices lost 4.2% and 1.5% respectively in April. As for bonds, higher interest rates (the yield on the 10-year US government bond rose from 4.2% to 4.68%, for example) pushed prices in this asset class down by 2.5% (-4.6% over 2024).
