As always, I am joined by our Chief Investment Officer, Ashley Owen. In this edition, we discuss whether the willingness of central bankers and governments to do whatever it takes to keep the party flowing signals the death of capitalism. We reflect on why shares are rising in such a gloomy environment and discuss how we are positioned in client portfolios.

Welcome to Stanford Brown’s monthly podcast, Market Insights.

As always, I am joined by our Chief Investment Officer, Ashley Owen. In this edition, we reflect on the performance of the major asset classes during the financial year just passed; we discuss the explosion in share trading accounts from Gen Z; we debate whether inflation is dead for ever; we ask whether it is impossible to fight the Fed; and why the Australian share market has lagged the rally.

We hope you enjoy!
