Market Review - Q4 2013

  • The US equity market delivered a strong performance across style and size indices during the quarter. Large cap growth recorded the strongest performance.

  • Dragged down by the poor performance of materials and energy stocks, emerging markets lagged developed markets as a group.

  • Commodities ended the year on a negative note as the DJ-UBS Commodity Index returned -1.1% during the fourth quarter, finishing the year down 9.5%.

  • Bond investors got a bit of bad news at the end of the quarter with the US Federal Reserve announcing the tapering of its monthly bond purchases - this move was not a surprise to the market.
