The third quarter of 2022 certainly went out with a bang as the UK government’s tax-cutting mini-budget unleashed mayhem in global markets. The foreign exchange, fixed income and equity markets were all shaken and took a nosedive.
Following intervention from the Bank of England markets were calmed a little, but the fundamental issues persist – global inflation remains stubbornly high, labour markets are tight and interest rates are soaring. While geopolitical tensions cannot be ignored as the Russia-Ukraine crisis threatens to escalate.
How do you keep a cool head in the face of this rapidly evolving economic turmoil?
Tom Caddick, our chief investment officer, and investment counsellor, Rebecca Cretney, discuss the events of Q3 2022 and their impact on financial markets, what this could mean for investors over the coming months and how we have positioned our portfolios to respond.
