This year has been highly dynamic from an investment perspective – impacted largely by factors such as inflationary pressures, Covid recovery uncertainty and a mountain of political instability globally, not to mention the Russia/Ukraine crisis that presents an entirely new influx of uncertainty and risk.
The question is, can our market expect a further downturn, are there still risks and what can we do to combat this negative market movement?
The reality is that advisors are striving to ensure the best possible solutions for their clients in a volatile market and while this is tough currently, we have to ask ourselves: what role does independent investing play? What advantages does it have in such an unpredictable local and global environment?
In this webinar recording, Moneyweb’s Ciaran Ryan and Wealthport, together with leading market players, address this and other aspects.
