Investment market review & outlook

2018 saw the culmination of a series of economic risks; US interest rates; the approaching end of the economic cycle; trade wars and other geopolitical issues; and of course Brexit. In terms of markets, it was one of the toughest years we have seen since the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. In this environment, there have been very few positives and we saw some drops in portfolios as result.

Julie Mallett Chartered Financial Planner

Julie joined Gibbs Denley Financial Services in 2010, after completing a Law degree. When considering her career options, she decided she would like to work in finance. Her search led her to an advert for a trainee Administrator role at our Bury St Edmunds office. Liking the sound of the job, she was also drawn by the potential for further study and progression within the company and the industry. Through Gibbs Denley Financial Services Professional Development Programme, she is now a Chartered Financial Planner. [click to continue…]

Investment markets have exhibited mixed behaviours so far this year, from fretfulness in the highly volatile first quarter, to growing confidence in the second.  It is easy to see the risks in these troubled waters, especially given the media focus on some of them, but skillful navigation enables us to identify and making the most of the opportunities while minimising those risks.

Craig Hilton

Continuing a year of fantastic achievements from our staff, Associate Director and Financial Adviser Craig Hilton has recently gained both Chartered Financial Planner status and Fellowship of the PFS.

In order to achieve both of these, Craig has passed 19 exams requiring around 1,450 hours of study. He also has to demonstrate a commitment to continuous professional development as well as upholding the technical and ethical standards of the CII.

Craig, speaking about his study, says “Developing my knowledge and skills over many years has enabled me to offer better outcomes and help more clients achieve their financial plans and objectives. The PFS Fellowship and Chartered status are challenging, sacrificing many hours to study, but ultimately show a commitment to provide the highest quality of trusted advice and service to my clients. ”

Gibbs Denley Financial Services Ltd now have six members of staff who hold individual Chartered status, and two holding Fellowship.
