On Point Podcast, 1 May 2023

April proved to be another strong one for equity markets worldwide, ensuring that the run of good returns investors have enjoyed since late 2022 continued. However, we are entering a period that is typically more challenging.

Looking to the week ahead, there is plenty to keep investors busy. This week, we’ll be watching central bank decisions in Australia, Europe and the US, with the latter set to be the key event. Some important economic releases are due while the international reporting season also continues.

Key releases will come from Ecolab, FMC Corporation, Starbucks, CVS Health and Apple. Locally, the March quarter labour force report will be a highlight, as will the latest Financial Stability Report from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

We discuss all of this and more on this episode, so tune in to find out everything you need to know for the upcoming week across financial markets!
