23 23 Economic Summary Canadian equities has been the strongest asset class in the trust for 2014. It was led by the energy sector. Over the last 4 years the U.S equities have been the strongest performer. Some of this is attributed to the U.S. markets being under valued and trying to catch up but recently it has been due to the economic and profits backdrop that have been conducive to continuing gains in equity prices. Bonds had better than expected returns in 2014 as bond yields dropped earlier this year and prices rose.

24 24 Economic Outlook The driver of growth has shifted from the emerging world (e.g. China) to the U.S. Recovering real estate and capital markets and firming momentum in job creation have restored confidence, bolstering consumption. Led by the U.S., a self sustaining business cycle has gained traction. Stock valuations are not yet excessive, the global economy and corporate profits remain supportive and relative valuations (the expected returns for the risk taken) continue to favour stocks over bonds. Bonds returns are expected to be modest (below 4%) for a few years.
