2018 Financial Trends Predict Slow, But Steady Market Growth

Global financial investment firm predicts three critical trends for the year.

Zurich, Switzerland, January 29, 2018 --( After a shaky 2017, the global market is anticipating
growth. Unique Finance, a global investment and financial planning firm, shares three predictions for

With the rise of cryptocurrency and fall of the value of the British Pound, 2017 brought its fair shares of
highs and lows. In 2018, the market is showing signs of stabilizing growth. Here are three trends that will
set the tone for this year:

1. Increase in global trade. According to the World Trade Organization, 2018 will see a jump in trade
growth between 2-4 percent. At its highest, trade growth increase will be more than double the 1.3
percent growth in 2016.

2. Debt becomes more expensive, saving becomes more profitable. According to, the Federal
Reserve is expected to announce three interest-rate hikes in 2018. Variable-rate debt will get more
expensive to maintain. However, those who save will reap the benefits. At best, savings accounts will
yield up to 2.3 percent, a significant jump from 1.5 percent today.

3. Cryptocurrency will grow. In 2017, the Bitcoin's introduction was met with some trepidation. This
year, the market will see an increase in interest around cryptocurrencies, even introducing new ones, like
Ethereum. Known as “Bitcoin II,” Ethereum is generally accepted more by financial institutions.

“Overall, the global financial market will see some rebounds in key areas,” said Chris Bragger, financial
planning & analysis manager, Unique Finance. “However, it is important for consumers and businesses to
stay on top of their financial planning. That is why we are proud to offer a service that will help them do
just that.”
