Investment Outlook – Summer 2023

27 June 2023

“Investments are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get!”

At Argent’s 2023 Summer Investment Outlook, we took a look at why this Forrest Gump-inspired quote has been so applicable to the investing landscape. Inflation, interest rates, banking failures, A.I. domination and unexpected outperformers have led to a surprising market. However, as history reminds us, regardless of the market environment, staying invested is the key to long-term success.
