Market update with Chris Ralph - October

02 October 2015

China growth fears to the fore as volatility returns to markets.

Chris Ralph, Chief Investment Officer at St. James’s Place, outlines the performance of investment markets in the third quarter of 2015 as investors witnessed unseasonal levels of volatility over the summer months. Concerns over China dominated headlines as global indices retreated towards the end of the period, but Chris explains why this presents a valuable opportunity for some of our managers.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up.  You may get back less than you invested. Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
