“Volatility is breeding opportunity”

This article was originally published by Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management

The recent collapse of several banks, and upcoming changes to UK pension regulations are among the burning issues on many of our minds currently.

In our latest market update webinar, recorded on 30 March, experts from both our Chief Investment Office (Michel Perera, Thomas Becket and Richard Champion) and our Wealth Planning team (Matthew Phillips) came together to discuss their thoughts on the rapidly changing global economy – and the potential impact on you as an investor.

Find out:

  • How the forthcoming changes to UK pension rules (such as the planned abolition of the lifetime allowance) could impact you – and why it’s important to speak to a Financial Planner before you take any action
  • Why current market turbulence could create investment opportunities
  • Our thinking on concerns over the banking sector, and why a repeat of the 2007-2008 financial crisis looks extremely unlikely
  • The outlook for inflation in the US and the UK
  • How raised interest rates highlight the difference between good quality and mediocre companies
  • Why fixed interest investing may now offer better returns for many investors, after years of low and even negative yields.
