Proposed Changes to Your Portfolio:

In Brief...

September has unfortunately brought both bad weather and a second Covid wave to the UK, resulting in tighter restrictions across business and homes. We have seen an increase in volatility in markets with the S&P 500 falling over 7.8%, reflecting rising unpredictability in the US markets. Rising volatility has also been experienced in other global markets and the UK has been no exception.

The Reeves Investment Team has welcomed a new full-time analyst this month which has expanded our resources for both research and analysis but also allows the team to meet with even more fund managers and improve these vital relationships.

Through September we have been concentrating on speaking to each UK Equity fund manager currently present in the Reeves Model Portfolios. By doing this we have been able to ascertain the position of our UK Equity asset allocation and are now completely aware of all risks and opportunities currently being evaluated by these fund managers. It is also reassuring to hear the consolidated plans for second waves, further lockdowns and Brexit and how each of these scenarios offers these managers some clear winning areas to invest in.
