Q3 2018 - market, economic and AJ Bell Managed Portfolio Service update

Our Head of Active Portfolios, Ryan Hughes, reviews the performance of both our Passive and Active Managed Portfolio Services, outlining recent activity within the portfolios and the thought process behind them. He also looks at the performance of global markets during the third quarter of 2018 - as the US economy continues to motor at full throttle and Japan returns to positive territory. Ryan explains how these factors have impacted investment performance across the markets and also suggests what the market outlook could be for the remainder of 2018.

The value of investments can go down as well as up and your client may not get back their original investment.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and some investments need to be held for the long term.
