Q2 2018 – market, economic and AJ Bell Managed Portfolio Service update

Ryan Hughes, AJ Bell Investments’ Head of Active Portfolios, reviews the performance of both our Passive and Active Managed Portfolio Services, outlining the changes made within the portfolios and the thinking behind them. He also looks at the performance of global markets over the past 12 months, considering influences like European and US politics, and explaining how these have impacted investment performance across the markets. Ryan also suggests what the market outlook could be for the remainder of 2018.
