On arrival and upon registration our guests were guided to a private lounge area where they enjoyed a light buffet and selection of drinks. Following on, our guests headed to the conference Theater where Senior Partner, William Coppin introduced himself and provided a brief overview of AMA and our 25-year history, touching on the products and services we offer and how we add value to our clients with regards to their personal savings and investment goals for the future.
Joe provided our guests with insight into the current state of the Global Equities Market, discussing the longest-running bull market, highlighting factors at play. The Central Banks solution to the financial crisis in 2008, lowering interest rates around the world and how this has impacted the growth on investments and investment portfolios, versus traditional savings that people held solely in bank savings accounts. Other talking points for this session was looking at possible catalysts for a market correction, brief discussions on China’s slowing economy, interest rate hikes in the US and Europe, the ongoing trade war between China and the US as well as looking at the possible outcomes surrounding BREXIT and how this could impact the economy both in the short and longer-term.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the event and we look forward to hosting more Investment Insight Sessions this year.
