Mercer's Monthly Market summary provides an overview of global financial markets.
Volatility has returned to pre-Brexit levels while equity markets rallied over expectations of additional stimulus from central banks. News of the swift selection in the UK of Theresa May as Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party further eased concerns. In Japan, Prime Minister Abe declared victory after his coalition won a majority of the seats in the upper house which will help him to push forward his economic reform program, including additional monetary easing. However, central banks in the UK, Europe, Japan, the US, and some emerging markets chose to hold off on any additional monetary policy actions, awaiting new information on the impact of Brexit. Markets treaded water the last two weeks of the month with light seasonal trading volumes.
