  • Stocks and bonds were volatile in 2016, but overall it was a decent year for patient investors. Intermediate-term bonds performed in line with shorter term bonds in three of four rising interest rate environments – so no changes are planned in these assets.
  • First Trust Deeds continue to provide a high interest yield and should perform well in an increasing rate environment.
  • New all-time highs in equity markets have historically not been useful predictors of future returns.
  • It is impossible to time the market consistently and profitably.
  • Ensure you are comfortable with the risk in your portfolio so you don’t panic and sell your investments during a severe market downturn.
