Outlook & Commentary
Having already factored in an anticipated 25-basis-point rate hike, the markets are now eagerly awaiting the Fed’s forward guidance from its March meeting. Continued strength in the US economy could prompt shifts in the FOMC’s tone and “dot plots” – and foreshadow more rate rises on the horizon.

Investment Themes & Strategy
Tight US labour markets and stronger growth lead some to believe that higher inflation is coming, while others say structural shifts such as globalization and automation should keep wages and prices low. We expect an upward bias in inflationary pressures, but not a return to pre-crisis levels.

Although some view robo-advice as a passing trend, it has the potential to help investors and advisors alike, according to two new Grassroots Research surveys. Some advisors are even using the technology to manage smaller accounts more efficiently, which could bring more investors into the advice realm.
