By now you have most likely heard that the people of the United Kingdom have boted to leave the European Union. This will cause some temporary volatility in the Global Markets, not only based on the uncertainty of the situation, but also for the simple fact that the result was unexpected.
One thing to remember during times of uncertainty...
Markets tend to over-react, which tends to cause a dislocation between stock prices and actual value. This is when it really pays to have great ACTIVE MANAGEMENT; to take advantage of these types of situations.
Accross the board, the Portfolio Managers we utilize to manage your money have been raising cash levels in recent months waiting for this kind of dislocation. Although this type of event can cause some uncertainty in the short term, they always give an ACTIVE MANAGER an opportunity to buy great companies at a great price, and untimately outperform in the long run.
This is definatley not a time to panic, as these scenarios tend to be the best buying opportunities.
As you know, I am am constantly utilizing solutions for your portfolios which promote very good downside protection, bracing for volatility in the markets. The funds in your portfolios have great upside/downside capture rations, and ample cash weightings to take advantage of dislocations in the market.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns at this time. I'm here to help!
