Global Equities March quarter highlights

  • The global stock market declined 9% in Australian dollar terms over the past three months, unwinding gains made in the second half of 2019.
  • The first quarter was overshadowed by the spread of  COVID-19, the lockdown of countries and the almost simultaneous fiscal and monetary support to economies globally.
  • It will be difficult to know the extent of what is to come, but Australian dollar weakness in the March quarter has helped to offset the decline in offshore equity markets.
