Key points to note:
- A condensed combination of unexpected events in China, the Middle East and North Korea prompted sharp sell-offs in share markets.
- We expect market volatility to continue, however our expectation remains for better returns this year than we saw in 2015.
- AMP Capital’s active investment management and Dynamic Asset Allocation capability positions us to respond to this market sell-off and future continued volatility.
- Shares often go through rough patches; selling after falls just turns a paper loss into a real loss; market falls throw up opportunities; and dividends remain more attractive and more stable than bank interest.
