In the same way that market sentiment in 2016 was dominated by Brexit and the US presidential election, many anticipate the rollercoaster ride may continue in 2017.
Uncertainty provides opportunity
With almost seven years of quantitative easing coming to an end, a lack of underlying growth has resulted in equity markets around the world now asking – so what happens next?
No-one has a crystal ball, but our experience tells us that uncertainty always creates investment opportunities – for those who know where to look.
