Market View Q4 2020

This document presents a summary of our investment views. It explains our latest thinking on world markets and the most recent decisions we have made about what to buy and sell within your portfolio. The most recent changes happened in November when we brought portfolios back to a neutral setting, took the final step in reducing UK equities and took a more positive view on Asia. Our views may change at any time.
