Stockmarket falls

Dear <<First Name>>

Global stock markets have fallen dramatically in the past week after Federal Authorities announced the US economy is doing remarkably well and furthermore that they predict this continuing for the foreseeable future.

This news of a healthy economy has triggered stock markets into anticipating early rises in interest rates... and also, as a consequence, into anticipating rises in the yields paid on US Treasuries... the equivalent of our UK Gilts.

Interest rates have been at rock bottom levels for so long that any potential increases are now seen as a 'threat'... bringing confusion about their impact on companies and business sectors, at home and abroad.

Once again, these extraordinary falls highlight the lemming-like behaviour we have all too often witnessed over recent years, albeit negative behaviour is less commonly associated with a celebration of a major economy in bloom!

Whilst we do not have a crystal ball, we believe this situation will not last for very long and markets (and thereby your portfolio values) will recover, to ultimately reflect the prosperity now being experienced around the World.

Consequently, we do not plan to make any changes to your investments under current circumstances but, as ever, we will keep a close watch on developments.

Do feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss your current requirements.

Perhaps you’d like to discuss the topics raised above in the context of your own personal circumstances, or perhaps you’d just like to talk about another, unconnected financial matter?

We are always here to help. We don’t claim to have all the answers, to every question that clients throw in our direction, but we’ll do our very best to help, or at the very least we’ll point you in the direction of someone who can.

There are lots of ‘immediate’ ways of getting in touch. You can phone of course
01442 842538 or you could use Skype, or even FaceTime if you have an iPhone. However, if you’d initially like to think a matter through in greater detail and then send us an email instead that’s fine too and we promise to get back to you, just as soon as we can.
