‘The majority of your lifetime investment returns will be determined by decisions that take place during a small minority of the time.’ – Former Wall Street Journal columnist, author and investor, Morgan Housel.
Now is one of those times because we are living through a confluence of events, globally and locally, that have caused both extreme volatility and declines in market prices.
Several anticipated global vulnerabilities have been highlighted by the Coronavirus.
We started 2020 expecting some stabilisation in global growth after the turmoil in manufacturing caused by the trade wars. But we also cautioned that there was ample room for disappointment, considering elevated valuations and global fault lines such as high government and corporate leverage. Nobody expected the external shock to present itself in the form of the Coronavirus.
