Dear <<First Name>>
"Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift, which is why we call it the present."
Many of you will doubtless be familiar with this quotation, which appeared in the early part of the twentieth century. So, in this somewhat welcome lull in the Brexit hysteria, we thought it was rather an apt way to begin this bulletin.
The British Parliament has been paralysed by the Brexit debates since June 2016 and consequently, given very little attention to the other aspects of UK Life.
Ironically, since June 2016 our economy has performed well and although no one knows for certain what "tomorrow" holds, we might equally ask ourselves how much we actually need the Westminster Circus?
Your portfolio is invested around the globe and not just in the UK and since 01.06.16 you have enjoyed a return (after the deduction of all charges) of some 39%
One day, perhaps one or more of the numerous Brexit outcomes which are forecast with an apparent certainty by 'those in the know' will prove correct... but, for now the only certain fact is that "today" your investments are doing rather well.
Whilst most of the earlier predictions on all sides in the Brexit debate are now consigned to "history" there is certainly no shortage of candidates stepping forward from the media world who are equally happy to try out their fortune telling skills.
We still believe, as we did at the beginning, that life will go on and that the UK will continue to grow stronger. Thus, we urge you to enjoy the "present" and allow others to live in the future.
