Mercer's Monthly Market summary provides an overview of global financial markets.
After reaching 2016 highs in mid-April, equity markets closed the month with modest gains. The rebound of oil and a weaker US dollar contributed to improving sentiment. However, the news wasn’t all good: with the IMF trimming its global growth expectations, disappointing earnings and revenue growth in the technology sector, renewed concerns over Greece as the IMF is considering a revisit of the bailout agreement, and the earthquakes in the southern islands of Japan.
