Is it time for U.S. equity funds?


Our Research team has concluded that manufacturing, service and housing sectors in the United States have showed signs of strength.

Read in details what our Research Team has to say about the United States.

Economic Update (Feb 2012)
Asset Class Update (Feb 2012)

Below are some factors that that we believe the US will still be the leading economy in years to come:
- The USD remains as the largest reserve currency among major trading partners. This creates much support for the currency and holding of US government bonds.
- A political system that allows banks and companies to puppet the government for bailouts and a continuous increase of debt ceiling.
- World's largest economy and nominal GDP that is more than twice that of China.

Funds with significant exposure in the U.S. equity market are listed below.
