This Month : This way for Brexit...

Welcome to our December bulletin

Dear Client.

We hope this bulletin will keep you up-to-date with topical financial matters that can directly affect you… and your money!

As 2018 draws to a close, most of you will probably reflect upon the fact that it has certainly been the most extraordinary of years... and one that few of us would wish to see repeated.

Portfolio performance

Sadly, your investment portfolio will have seen little or no growth across the year, with early gains ultimately offset by global markets responding negatively to political manoeuvring and machinations, within the UK and beyond. 

Brexit continues to dominate and is proving more divisive than ever, within communities large and small. The lack of clarity from our own politicians and those in Brussels is astonishing, given that the Brexit vote was over two and a half years ago. One wonders now, what deal (if any) will be struck at the eleventh hour and fifty-ninth minute! 

There was an interesting article in the FT Money section last Saturday, penned by Meryn Somerset-Webb, in which she explained her own thoughts on Brexit and why our politicians generally behave like rabbits caught in car headlights. She believes they have lost the 'art of decision-making' and succumbed to the imposition of ever-growing rules and regulations... which ultimately derive from the structure of the EU, as well as wide-spread globalisation. 

At Integra, we take the view that the underlying economies of both the UK and Europe are still essentially in good shape and that, once our future is finally settled, we should eventually start to see the benefits.

Christmas Wishes

Finally, we wish you and yours a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. 

Help for HeroesFor a number of years we have been making a donation to charity rather than sending out Christmas cards. This year we are supporting Help For Heroes, which assists Serving and Reservist Personnel and Veterans who have suffered injuries or illness as a result of their service to the Nation - helping regain their sense of purpose and have a positive impact on society. The Charity also helps their close family and dependents.

regards, Jeremy Hill
