Coming out of 2022 there was little hope for positive news and much to be frustrated with in the markets. With nearly every sector and market down for the year, it felt like there was more to come in 2023, but as we finish the first quarter we see positive returns nearly across the board. With some gains more muted than others, it’s been an encouraging start to the year especially following the volatility of 2023.
Watching the international markets outperform domestic returns once again in Q1 of 2023 was surprising to most, but once again speaks to the importance of long-term investment and diversification.
Please enjoy this quarterly market review prepared by our partners at Dimensional Fund Advisors as well as the Quarterly Topic at the end.
