按文中的逻辑,“证据表明” 肯定是在 “was compounded”之前的

compound用“加剧”“加重”“恶化”皆可

信贷和金融危机后出现的投资者信心受挫于去年年末更加恶化,证据显示全球各主要经济板块均陷入衰退泥沼。

我觉得前后两句没有因果关系,as在这里我觉得不是因为的意思,而是和 . . . 同一时间的意思。

此句可译为:投资者丧失信心始于去年年底,由于有证据表明全球主要经济板块陷入衰退泥沼,信心不足而随之加剧。

I am not sure we need waste our time on this. This is not a proper sentence: In proper English, "compounded by" should be followed by a secondary factor that made things more serious, not by a time.  Whoever wrote this sentence was either careless or not proficient in English.
