Is it plain sailing or do we have a storm brewing?
On the 17th October 2017, Gary and the team at Blue Sky Financial Planning held an afternoon tea event for clients and special guests, with Justin Urquhart Stewart from Seven Investment Management.
With an early career that spanned the vineyards of Europe, the docks of Southampton and finance in Asia, Justin went onto establish Broker Services at what became Barclays Stockbrokers. Today he is one of the most recognisable and trusted market commentators on television, radio and in the press. He is also one of the co-founders of 7IM.
Justin, in his inimitable style, provided insight on world events and the likely impact on financial markets. There’s never a dull moment of course with Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in power. Throw into the mix the occasional hurricane, Brexit and currency fluctuations and there was much to talk about.
The audience were also invited to submit any questions to Justin in advance in order for him to tailor his talk around topics of interests. His views and presentation style both informed and entertained!
