Since the GFC, the economy has enjoyed what many have dubbed the Australian moment. It was argued that Australia was structurally well-positioned in terms of China and a falling USD which helped push-up commodity prices and investment. According to UBS, the Australian economy has a sell sign hanging as US and Japanese investors redirect their portfolios to their home markets.

In the medium-term, Australian bonds/equities are expected to underperform as balance is restored to our economy. (VIEW LINK)
