Takiing Stock Spring 2020 Edition

Back to basics

Investors have had to navigate a somewhat uncertain and even unconventional landscape over the past few years.

The bull run that began back in 2009 maintained momentum throughout a decade of political and economic upheaval. Investment markets remained resilient through crisis after crisis, with predictions of downturns and recessions time and again proving wide of the mark.

Suddenly, the coronavirus pandemic has changed all of that with markets taking sharp downward slides in recent weeks. If this underlines anything, it is the need for investors to be prepared for whatever it is that comes next.
