Long-term interest rate trends and forecast
The US Federal Reserve has just raised its benchmark interest rates for the first time in ten years. This hike – by 25 base points – brings to an end a period of 84 months in which the benchmark interest rates were virtually at zero. Janet Yellen emphasizes that bringing interest rates back to normal will be a slow process. For that reason, we expect both the US and global economies to be able to cope well with this cycle of moderate interest rate increases. Lending conditions are also likely to remain favorable in view of the relaxed monetary policies adopted by the euro zone, Japan and China. Overall, we expect the coming months to bring a slight increase in long-term returns, both in the US and on the European markets.
