Portfolios Update - Commercial Property Suspensions
As expected the market post Brexit has been volatile but perhaps not in the way in which some investors envisaged. Certainly a number of commentators and some of our clients were of the opinion that perhaps they should sell the equity market or liquidate their portfolio to stem losses or to endeavour to make money. As we have said previously any trade such as this would be a binary gamble, it would either be right or wrong. Who would have thought the FTSE 100 index would immediately drop 5.62% but then rally 11.76% to where it is as of 11th July 2016. I have no doubt some traders made a lot of money, I also have no doubt some traders lost a lot of money.

A little over two months from now, on 23rd June, residents of the United Kingdom of Great Britain will be asked to vote on whether we remain in or leave the European Union. Similar to that of Scottish independence, it’s a fascinating question and the answer may give rise to a genuinely seminal moment in our nation’s modern history.

Michaela Bond was very patient and explained, more than once, details and information about my investment. I am pleased I have trusted you with my investment and would recommend your services to other parties.

I was very pleased with the service that I received. The help and advice from Rob Connell was thorough, comprehensive and understandable. This was all delivered in a timely, friendly and non-threatening manner.
All in all I am delighted with his help and advice, and I will recommend his services to family and friends in the future.
