Our Weekly Column
Happy New Year! As the memories of 2018 fade into the distance, our thoughts turn to what is to come in 2019. The markets have been volatile over the past year as a result of the Brexit complications with the FTSE All Share index falling by over 14% from its highest point in May, compared to its lowest point in December. We have also seen the bubble burst for the over hyped Bitcoin falling over 74% over the twelve month period. Whilst the markets have fallen (which is the nature of stock market linked investments), it is not all doom and gloom as the lower prices enable investors to buy in at a more competitive price and will hopefully reap the returns when the markets recover. However, we will have to wait and see what’s in store for 2019.
