Investment Market Updates In Light Of Russia’s War On Ukraine

Against expectations, last week, President Vladimir Putin launched an attack on Ukraine, shocking the world and ending 50 years of political understanding that large scale land war is no longer an option in Europe’s political theatre. 

Resulting consequences also mean that the economy is now in confusion which, in turn, has led to many people having questions about their investments.

The main investment management firm we use is Tatton Investment Management – we have a number of clients that invest in a range of their Portfolios within ISAs and Pensions. As part of their regular contact with us, on 24th February, we received an update from Tatton entitled “Special market update: Putin invades Ukraine”.

In essence, the update goes into detail about how Putin’s attack on Ukraine is changing the market parameters this year. Amongst other things, it highlights how Tatton’s Portfolios have been affected, what they are doing to preserve the value of clients’ investments, whether now is the right time to buy and how clients can keep up to date on their investments. 

Here at Portland Financial Planning, we feel that Tatton’s CEO & Chief Investment Officer, Lothar Mentel, provides an extremely good insight into money markets and current influences. As such, we would highly recommend monitoring Tatton’s News page in order to gain regular updates on these topics.

Ben and Hannah, our specialist financial advisers, have read and digested the update from Tatton, and we are ready to answer any questions you may have.

We are currently living in worrying and unprecedented times, and we understand that you may have concerns. If so, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team and we will be more than happy to discuss these in further detail.
