Episode 60- Understanding share market volatility

Episode 60- Understanding share market volatility

What has driven the major increase in share market volatility over the last few month. My guest today is Jon Reilly, the Chief Investment Officer at Implemented Portfolios. Implemented Portfolios is a company that helps financial advisers provide portfolio management solutions to their clients. Jon discusses various international events that can impact the share market volatility, such as the government shutdown in the U.S. the trade wars in China, and the upcoming Australian election. He also explains how these events can have a significant impact on your financial investments.

Don’t miss this week’s segment of Reuben’s Rant where I react to the statistics we see on the 2019 Australian Open and how these numbers can be misleading.

“Try to understand what the current potential catalyst for volatility are and whether they impact how you make decisions about what’s in your portfolio.”- Jon Reilly
