SPRING 2022

Note from the MD

ANDY MCCABE

With the current Ukraine crisis escalating, some investors are obviously disconcerted about falling markets worldwide. With commodities hitting record levels and crude oil prices increasing daily, thus making imports / exports of raw materials more expensive.  The uncertainty in investment markets means investment returns potentially being hit one way or another, depending on how and where money is invested.

We should be mindful of this changing landscape and reviewing our portfolios on a constant basis may be the solution to help smooth out returns and reduce our exposure to weaker markets. Historically, geopolitical events have shown to have a very short term effect on the markets, however, this is dependent on a lot of factors, not least the length of time the Ukraine crisis goes on.
