Cautious Optimism: A Discussion On Markets, Diversity Initiatives

Emerging Manager Monthly | July 5, 2024

Quincy Brown, FEG Managing Di­rector, was featured on the July Issue of Emerging Manager Monthly for a Q&A session on markets and diversity initiatives.

Quincy Brown notes, "Near-term, we are cautiously optimistic, given that the latter half of election year returns tend to be solid, corporate earnings are strong, and overall economic conditions remain stable. These condi­tions have endured despite the persistence of geopolitical conflicts and tensions, inflation and subsequent Fed responses increasing speculative tendencies, and valuations remaining high in U.S. (large cap) equities."
