At G+E Wealth Management we believe it is important to keep you fully updated with regards to the performance of your investments and whether the news is good or bad, we are here for you. In addition, recent market events have resulted in the need to issue some of the letters required as part of  the MIFID II legislation if the value of a discretionary portfolio falls by 10% or more from your most recent quarterly valuation.

As I am sure you are aware, Russia’s military action in Ukraine has resulted in heightened volatility across global stock markets. The initial market reaction has seen a rise in oil prices and a fall in global stock markets. However, the FTSE 100, FTSE All Share, S&P 500 and Eurostoxx 600 all remain valued higher than the same time in 2021. The MOEX Russia stock market has borne the brunt of the market volatility, but our portfolios have little or no exposure to that.

Our advice to clients is tailored to each individual person’s circumstances and the advice we would give today is not fundamentally different from a month ago, but if you have any questions, then please get in touch with your Financial Planner and rest assured that we will continue to manage your investments according to your agreed mandate.
