Market Overview

Click the above video to play Jasmine’s latest Quarterly update.

After the positive and rather extraordinary growth of 2021, so far, 2022 has been a shock yet somewhat inevitable.

The tragedy of the war between Russia and Ukraine, the fallout from covid and the boom that followed has seen price hikes, supply chain disruption and interest rate increases.

Both bonds and shares were under fire as further increases in interest rates and hikes in inflation were priced in.  In the 2nd quarter to 30th June 2022, global equities fell 15.7%, and the bond market held up better with an 8.3% decline.

These figures, however, illustrate the importance of diversification and expert fund managers.  By having a diverse portfolio and investing across different asset classes and sectors, the overall impact of market volatility comes down. During this volatile time, we are actively engaging with our preferred Platforms, and they have all performed well in terms of protecting against the larger market losses we have seen so far this year.

Inflation is set to peak higher than predicted but will settle and start to reduce in 2023.  Economic growth is slowing, but a real recession is still not predicted, although the probability has increased.

It is going to be a rough year, but hang on in. Patience and time in the market are always rewarded. Clients sitting on too much cash, and losing real value due to inflation levels, should also see the current climate as an opportunity to buy into the market at a discount.

I have done an important and detailed Market Review for you to watch, which you can access here.

In the meantime, if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.
