Investment markets update

In the world of investment markets there’s so much ‘noise’ swirling around at the moment causing FUD (Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt). To bring a sense of clarity, we thought we’d raise a number of key issues with Craig Burgess, who is Head of Evidenced Based Investments – our selected Investment Partner.

In this latest podcast Duncan Orr, Swindell’s Chartered Wealth Manager & Director, asks Craig what is actually going on in the investment markets, what direction we should be going in and what actions we should be taking.

If you don’t have time to listen to the full interview, fast forward to the question that you are particularly interested in:
