CIBC Asset Management Perspectives - In a wait-and-see mode
Risk assets fell off a cliff late last year, only to stage their strongest comeback in more than a decade over the first quarter.

Equity: While equity markets may struggle in the short term to find a catalyst, we should see positive but unspectacular returns in 2019.
