We would like to keep you updated on the position of the financial markets throughout the covid-crisis.
Markets continued to recover up to the end of 2020, resulting in a prosperous year for growth overall, despite the drops seen in March 2020 as the covid-crisis hit. Global equities have fallen back a touch in 2021 but traditional sectors of the FTSE have continued to rally due to the success of the vaccine roll-out in the UK.
The market outlook remains positive for the long-term and the opinion is there is still more value to be gained as we move out of lockdown and economies start to rebuild over the coming months.
Check how your investments are performing
If you have existing investments or pensions you should be reviewing how these are invested and performing at this stage. A properly managed investment portfolio should be able to limit losses in volatile times and excel in the upturn. You should also be carefully assessing the amount of risk that you are taking with your investments and ensuring this is in line with your objectives and requirements.
Any person in a position to invest capital should also be assessing the opportunities available, as there are good opportunities for long-term growth with fund prices still low currently.
