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:

  • Positive sentiment stemming from the hope of a trade agreement between the US and China
  • 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


Over February, global equity markets continued the rally that commenced at the start of 2019, finishing 3.4% higher in in hedged currency terms.
