WEBINAR: Protecting your investment portfolio during a pandemic

As a second wave of COVID-19 cases emerges in Australia and around parts of the world, investors are once again dealing with uncertainty on how they can continue to navigate the difficult investment environment and protect their wealth. This uncertainty is heightened for pre-retirees and retirees, where exposure to markets is at its highest, requiring a focus on risk and the sustainability of their portfolios and to sustain retirement savings.

Perpetual Private’s investment team will share their views on the current state of markets, what it means for assets such as fixed income and equities, and how they are actively managing client portfolios to rebalance asset allocations and manage continued market volatility.
