How to handle your cash, bonds and property in the era of cryptocurrencies.
It’s been a year since we’ve seen much growth in the global asset class, but the industry is now at the forefront of the financial services landscape.
It has created a new and highly lucrative opportunity for investors, who can now invest in everything from technology to financial services.
But is there any way to manage that risk and make sure it’s properly managed?
Read moreICM has released its annual report for 2016, and its latest results are fascinating.
In its annual summary, ICM said that global capital markets have grown at an average annual rate of 8.6%.
It is still the weakest performing asset class globally, but that growth has reversed in the past 12 months, with the growth rate of capital markets growing at an annual rate (AUS: 3.9%).
It is the fourth consecutive year that the investment grade rating has improved, and the last year to achieve a grade of BBB+ in the US.
However, the report does highlight some other concerns, namely the rising risk of a “money-printing” crisis.
As we reported last year, this is a trend that has continued in recent years, and in some countries it is a major risk factor for sovereign defaults.
It is not just the lack of growth in markets.
Many asset classes have been hit by financial crises, with China, Japan and South Korea being the notable exceptions.
This has resulted in the introduction of new regulatory regimes that are forcing investors to make difficult decisions.
These changes in regulatory frameworks have not been without their costs, as some investors are now being held hostage by financial institutions to avoid the financial shock of new regulation.
This year’s report shows that there is still a lot of risk to manage in the asset class.
ICM says that it does not see any clear evidence that asset prices will improve.
This is because there is a significant gap between the financial assets that are currently under management and the capital that is available to invest in them.
The lack of an appropriate allocation between assets has resulted, in some cases, in the complete collapse of an asset class that is worth trillions of dollars, says ICM.
While the report highlights some of the challenges in the sector, there are some bright spots.
For instance, the US has been the fastest growing major asset class in the world in terms of the amount of assets it has managed to allocate to them.
In the past two years, assets in the United States have grown by over 50%, with the number of asset classes now reaching $3.6 trillion.
There are also signs that there may be a growing appreciation of US equities as the financial crisis and the subsequent economic slowdown have lifted demand for them.
According to ICM, the world is seeing a positive trend in asset allocation.
The percentage of total assets in which equities are a majority share has grown from less than 5% to nearly 20% over the past three years.
The US has also emerged as a major driver of asset allocation, with assets in equities up by nearly $20 trillion in the last two years.
Despite these positive trends, the asset classes that are most vulnerable are not the same as they were a few years ago.
In fact, the global capital market is now growing at a pace that is at odds with what investors would have expected, says the report.
This is in contrast to the UK, which has a large capital market that is growing at 3.7%.
The UK is still experiencing some of those issues, but it is also showing some signs of recovery.
The UK has also seen a positive effect on the financial markets, with bond yields falling in recent months.
But there is more to come from the UK.
