Below are some key highlights from what happened in markets in April 2024:

  • Most asset classes fell slightly, after strong performance in the first quarter of 2024.
  • All major Western central banks held rates level, as expected, but the Bank of England and European Central Bank look to be approaching a rate cut as inflation moves closer to target. In comparison, the US has experienced some inflationary setbacks.
  • UK equities outperformed other markets as higher oil prices helped fossil fuel producers, like BP and Shell.
