Our latest commentary - Year in review

2016- what a year! Who would have predicted on January 1st 2016 that within 12 months the UK would have voted to leave the EU and that a reality TV show host/property tycoon would be waiting to wipe his feet on the doormat of the White House? And even if you did have such powers of perception, it would surely be a step too far to believe that equity markets might rise over the same period, in such extraordinary circumstances. Yet, rise they did.
