Dear Sir/Madam,


 Welcome to your Autumn edition of the Chrysalis Newsletter.  Daylight savings may be ending but Australian cash savings are not!  We are entering a new phase in the market cycle presently with the investment markets, both here and overseas, having on the whole performed quite strongly since November 2011.  Most people’s investment portfolios will have seen some steady gains during the first quarter of this year.  Good news.........but..........will it last?  No-one can answer this for sure.  What we do know is the market (people) want to recover and move out of cash and back into growth markets like shares and property.  We have seen evidence of this by investors ‘dipping their toes in the water’ in the first quarter of 2012.  This has driven prices upwards.  I expect this will continue albeit with periods of higher than normal volatility.

Whilst some of the economic signs coming out from the US and Europe are encouraging, I personally am not quite ready to pop the champagne cork just yet.  We have not heard the last of Spain and Italy who will need to both make further austerity changes to their economies and this will be unpopular with their people.  We also have a number of political factors in play especially with the Iranians in the Middle East.

So we are moving into a part of the investment cycle where some countries and companies will do well and others won’t.  You will have already been or shortly will be contacted by my team via email with a recommendation to change your investment selection and perhaps make an appointment for a review as we are in the middle of a big project to rework all client investment portfolios to take up this need for a targeted approach.

We look forward to hopefully looking back on 2012 as being the year that the turnaround of the GFC began to take shape.

As always we are only a phone call away if we can be of any assistance or support to you.  We trust you had a wonderful Easter.  All the very best until we talk next.

 

Phil
