Commentary Q2 2017

The Time is Right for International Equity

International equities continued their strong performance during Q2 2017. The weak U.S. dollar, which has been under pressure all year, has had a seemingly positive effect for USD investors.  At the sector level, we saw impressive performance across the board with nearly all sectors contributing positive performance. Going forward, we believe international stocks have begun to outperform U.S. stocks and the potential for catch up is very large. For portfolio allocators with significant underweights to international equity, now might be a good time to review that thesis.
