Industry outlook

The emergence of a strengthening US dollar could provide a material opportunity for Record in the large US market. US investors holding assets denominated in foreign currencies have benefited from the weakness of the US dollar on a trade-weighted basis since 2001; hedging could protect these gains.The much expected rise in US interest rates occurred in December 2015, but since then market sentiment over concerns on the strength of the global economy has lowered expectations about the pace of further US rate rises.
