As we head in to the second half of 2021, I’m pleased to share with you a review of how the stock markets have reacted to outside influences in the first half of the year, in video format.

I am also delighted to be joined for the first time on camera by Ascot Lloyd's new Head of Collectives, Alena Kosava.

In this video we discuss:

  • The progress made in the second quarter of the year (Apr – Jun inclusive)
  • Why we saw some peaks and troughs in market volatility
  • How the 3rd wave of the pandemic will be different
  • Comparing the UK's GDP with the rest of the world
  • Inflation 

We hope you find the video an informative and useful summary of the investment market landscape.

As always, if you have any questions about the information contained within the video, or if you need any support with your financial planning and investments, please contact your Ascot Lloyd financial adviser who will be happy to help. Alternatively, please request a call back using the form below and a member of the team will be in touch.

Until next time, stay well.

The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back any of the amount originally invested. Because of this, an investor is not certain to make a profit on an investment and may lose money. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of overseas investments to rise or fall.
