Plenty of Christmas Cheer
2016 was a roller coaster year for the financial markets. Things went up, but also down, and as a result it was not a stellar year for investment portfolios.
The world was fixated by Brexit and the US presidential elections. The markets held their breath as we moved into uncharted territory. There is bound to be longer term fall out from these two major events, but for us in New Zealand, the sun came up, or the rain came down (depending upon where you live), and the markets lived on.
