Acuity 41: Don't worry, be happy!

The world today feels like a troubled place, with populism on the rise, Donald Trump in the White House, Kim Jong-un with his finger on a nuclear button and the uncertainty over Brexit. But we risk getting things out of perspective; it has always been thus.

Remember, bad news hits the headlines, whilst good news is often boring and unsensational. Experts, pundits and reporters all dabble in futurology (trying to second guess the future). Remember too that all news – good and bad - is already reflected in the price of the investments that you own.

As this volume of Acuity demonstrates, a well-structured portfolio will allow you to stop worrying about market-related scares, and enjoy life!
