Demographics and Trump’s policies to boost demand in 2017

Trump’s economic policies and a growing older population will give the world economy a boost in 2017 and beyond, says Aymeric Forest, head of global income for multi-assets at Schroders.


He cites the reflationary nature of Donald Trump’s economic programme in the next few years, and the longer-term trend of ever increasing numbers of people aged 60 and over around the world, set to double in size between 2010 and 2025.

Forest also identifies emerging markets as having attractive yields but warns of the need to be very selective on which currency, equity and bond investments to make.
