As lockdown restrictions continue to ease around the world and the global vaccination programme gathers pace, markets have turned their attention to life post the pandemic. However, the optimism with regard to global growth is giving way to concerns that inflation may spike for the foreseeable future, despite the assurances from the Federal Reserve.
David McFadzean, head of wealth management, was joined by Tom Caddick, chief investment officer, as they discussed recent trends in financial markets, how these might affect investors in the coming months, and how our portfolios are positioned to respond.
In particular, the conversation focused on the impact inflation might have on markets should the price increases become more entrenched. We also flagged the role of alternative investments in portfolios and why they are of increasing importance, with the discussion also encompassing the types of alternative investments we hold and our view on Bitcoin.
