2015 Year in Review
When it comes to business and investing, 2015 was one of the more volatile years we’ve had in a while. With declining oil prices, fluctuating currencies, and a focus on interest rates – there was no shortage of news. For most Canadians, these events likely weighed heavily on your portfolio’s results. Jeff Singer, Investors Group’s Chief Investment Officer, and Bill Chornous, an Investment Strategist at Investors Group, shed some light on some of the key investment stories from last year.
