As a Chartered Independent Financial Advisory firm, we are not linked to any one financial institution and the recommendations we make are based solely upon the suitability of advice to best meet each client’s needs.

Please read the latest commentary to understand how the markets are impacting investments. The outlook highlights what is going on in the capital markets around the world and walks you through our investment partner’s perspective on a variety of investment topics.

This month we feature commentary from the Investment Manager, Psigma:

  • The second quarter of 2021 was an unequivocally positive period for global asset markets
  • The economy booms back: the biggest factor we need to analyse is how strong the economic growth of the world will be as we progress deeper into 2021 and the start of 2022
  • Not all plain sailing: there are economic uncertainties further out in the next few years that concern us
  • Portfolio positioning: inflation continues to be the dominant factor that we think about when constructing client portfolios

We discuss the above and more here.
