MARKETS HIT A TWO YEAR HIGH
November, traditionally the time for fireworks and big bangs, saw the markets around the world illuminated with stellar performances.
The markets, including the UK FTSE 100, reached a two year high and finally recovered the levels reached before the international banking crisis which caused share prices across the world to plummet dramatically.
This is good news for investors and pension holders who will have watched the value of their funds increase, particularly since the low point reached in spring 2009.
However, the events of the last two years merely emphasise the need for a properly constructed risk based portfolio. The worst of the volatility experienced over the last two years could have been limited using a risk related investment strategy.
