“I believe that the major problem hindering families from realizing their Financial Goals is the inherent clash between the structure of the financial services industry, the behavioural biases (of clients and agents), juxtaposed against the actions of Central Banks.”
Central Banks across the world have frequently used quantitative easing (QE) as a means to introduce greater liquidity into the economy. However, QE has raised the risk of moral hazard: investors will take greater risks, knowing that the potential costs will be borne, in whole or in part, by others. Moreover, QE has increased asset prices, which in turn has severely affected the ‘prospective return’ on all assets.
