Why Does The US Federal Reserve Matter To Malaysians?

Whether you invest in US stocks or not, the Fed plays a pivotal role in global equity markets, as its actions in the US have rippling effects globally, but why is this so? Roshan Kanesan explores with Lim Chia Wei, Senior Portfolio Manager at Affin Hwang Asset Management.

They also break down quantitative easing, why rising Treasury yields sparked a market sell-off, and the potential consequences of the unprecedented monetary policy.
