We are delighted to announce that Matthew Clark has been named as one of three finalists for the prestigious Personal Finance Society (PFS) Chartered Financial Planner of the Year Award 2013 (Individual).
Looking ahead to the final quarter of the year, we expect to see continued progress in the markets, building on the consolidation of the last three months. As investor confidence returns, we should see demand increase for high quality UK stocks and selected funds, particularly those paying above average dividends by strong profitable companies.
The third quarter began with a strong start to July followed by a period of relative calm in which the FTSE-100 index of leading UK companies hovered around the 6,500 point mark. So, are we finally starting to see some welcome stability return to the markets?
