Interest rates and inflation will be “low, low, low” for the U.S. economy next year and that will be good.

That’s one of the predictions of officials at mutual fund giant Neuberger Berman, which held a 2015 projections session on Wednesday in Manhattan.

U.S. growth rates will again moderately increase, with a projected GDP increase of two to three percent, according to the company’s forecasters. Inflation will be low to negligible. Interest rates, even though the central bank will finally raise them, will remain low, rising very slowly.

This, Neuberger Berman (NB) officials say, will lead to a strengthening of the dollar as other major economies, having problems expanding, will be vigorously increasing money supply.

“Our outlook for the global economy for 2015 will be characterized by a continuance of low interest rates, lower to moderate economic growth and low inflation,” said Erik Knutzen, multi-asset class chief investment officer for the fund company, which has some $250 billion in assets under management.

“So we are continuing in this low, low, low-to-moderate environment,” Knutzen added.

But while the Fed will be raising rates, NB officials predicted, Europe and Japan will be going in the opposite direction, continuing their quantitative easing.

“The global environment will continue to be characterized by aggregate monetary stimulus. The Bank of Japan is continuing to aggressively expand its balance sheet,” Knutzen said.

The European Central Bank is committed to expanding its balance sheet by one trillion euros, he added. Despite anticipated U.S. central bank tightening, the opposite actions in Japan and Europe are expected to double the world’s bank balance sheets in 2015, Knutzen predicted.

Why the continued easy money policies outside of the United States?

That’s because, another Neuberger Berman official warned, the economic fundamentals of some European countries seem about as bad going into 2015 as they were going into 2014.

“But while those troubled markets may have the worst behind them, fundamentals in the core of the continent have deteriorated somewhat,” writes Benjamin Segal, portfolio manager and head of NB’s global equity team.

“France has stalled, Italy is weak and the sanctions aimed at Russia are an incremental negative affecting many European companies,” said Segal.

Japan has many of these same problems. Its economy, which seemed to be coming out of its recent tailspin, is now facing more problems and losing its economic momentum. This, NB officials said in a year-end report, is “driven in part by a consumption tax introduced in April and sluggish wage growth.”

Europe is struggling and Japan and China are trying to stabilize, NB officials said. This means that staying at home next year appears to be a good option for investors looking for opportunities, an investment environment with little inflation and single-digit returns.

“We remain constructive on equities. We see reasonable growth,” said Joseph Amato, president and chief investment officer of Neuberger Berman. “We are confident in the prospects for U.S. equities, on the back of sustained economic improvement, steady earnings prospects and still-reasonable valuation levels.”

Plunging oil prices, he added, will also contribute to this upbeat domestic outlook.

“U.S. equities will be a relatively attractive market in 2015, especially stocks relative to bonds,” Knutzen said.
