Investment Markets Overview – w/e 19 April 2013

The G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors’ met up this week in Washington D.C on the eve of the IMF and World Bank Spring meeting’s.

High on the agenda was an affirmation to a commitment to avoid weakening their currencies to gain a trade advantage, which no doubt brought a smile to the faces of the Japanese contingent. They were united, however, to edge away from government austerity, rejecting the idea of setting hard targets for reducing national debt Meanwhile, the IMF issued yet another downgrade for global economic growth, within months of issuing the last one.
