This quarter has been extremely significant with the surprise referendum result to leave the European Union on 23 June. The country has entered a period of uncertainty in terms of the economy so keeping up with the latest news is vital. In the autumn edition of our newsletter, we explore the most important developments in the world of financial planning and we hope you enjoy reading it.
Our feature this edition is, unsurprisingly, around the referendum result. ‘Brexit fallout: what are the implications?’ looks especially at the implications for investors and the importance of a diversified investment portfolio to weather turbulent times.
Our other stories include:
