February 2019 Review - Markets continue strong recovery


The share market recovery experienced in January picked up further pace in February with leading indices across the globe recording solid gains. Some of the notable developments for the month included:

  • Global bond yields remained steady, while Australian yields fell
  • The benign outlook for interest rates supported listed infrastructure and property
  • Australia's financial sector experienced a recovery on the less significant than feared Royal Commission recommendations
