Quarterly investment update Summer 2021.

Our Summer Update, takes a look back at the quarter gone by from October to December 2021. The past few months have been a turbulent ride that have seen shares trend slightly higher.

Although global economic growth was positive through the quarter and looking relatively resilient, the environment still remains replete with enough uncertainties (inflation, interest rates, Omicron) that investment returns were volatile.

An overview of the broad economic environment is contained in the market commentary section of the update. A more detailed summary of the various market returns through the quarter is covered in the key market movements section.

The update concludes with a feature article titled ‘You can’t put a number on happiness'. 

As always, we look forward to updating you with the progress of markets and investments throughout the year.
