Investors headed towards the end of 2019 in an optimistic mood as two policy risks that were plaguing sentiment throughout the year receded in December, while some nascent signs of a stabilizing global economy also buoyed risk appetite. Of note, the US and China managed to agree on the details of a “phase one” trade accord that averted a fresh onslaught of tariffs and modestly rolled back some existing duties. And across the Atlantic, the likelihood of a disorderly Brexit scenario declined after PM Boris Johnson secured a solid Conservative majority in the general elections, which has paved the way for a smooth exit in 2020.
