Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 Index has risen by 2.3 per cent so far in 2017, including a 2.5 per cent gain in the last five trading sessions. However, it is still 15 per cent below its peak, and its performance significantly lags that of its international peers. AMP Capital’s Nader Naeimi says overseas markets offer better opportunities for investors at present, while James Pomeroy of HSBC forecasts that emerging markets will become a major driver of global economic growth.
