Dear Sir/Madam,


 December 2014 - Summer Edition

 

 

"Well Christmas is almost upon us and another year gone by.  I don't know about you but it feels that the pace and demands of life are on the increase.  Life is busy and getting busier!  So we hope you are within eyesight of a period of rest, relaxation and fun.

 

It has been another successful year for our client's investments with your Chrysalis portfolios again producing returns in the first quartile.  This means that Chrysalis clients received returns that were some of the highest anywhere in in the industry for the fourth year running.  Good news during a turbulent and particularly difficult year in the markets.  We anticipate this will continue in a similar vein into 2015 with similar portfolio returns.

 

Turning to the world...........The real success of this year was in the East whilst parts of the West (Europe) languished.  The Shanghai sharemarket is up 31%, India 34% and Indonesia 21% year to date.  This result is set to continue into 2015.  Global growth was a large part of the discussions in the recent G20 Summit in Brisbane.  The stunning recent collapse in oil prices, 40% decline in oil since mid-year, is unambiguously positive for the global economy.   The dramatic decline in energy prices is equivalent to a significant tax cut and regions like Asia & Europe are the big beneficiaries.  Not a good picture ahead though if you are Russian!

 

Australia as a nation, on the other hand, is slowing with income growth being negative last quarter.  Australia could be in for a relatively tough year but still providing stock picking opportunities that your expert and experienced fund managers will hopefully successfully continue to find for you as they have done over the past 4 years.

 

At Chrysalis, Marcia has moved on and we have a new front office staff member, Nicole, who will likely be the first voice and face you have contact with.  Nicky is Canadian and has a background in Stock broking and financial advice in Canada.  We welcome Nicky to the team!

 

So as the temperatures heat up and the monsoonal storms cool down most evenings we all await Christmas.  A time when we can refocus on family, friends and lifestyle.  Your Chrysalis team enjoy 'doing life' together with you and look forward to sharing life's adventure next year. Thank you for your support.  Merry Christmas and may every blessing come your way in 2015."
