Trump Wins US Presidency

An unexpected result! Markets greatly dislike uncertainty and unexpected results. So quite simply, expect some volatility and expect some short term drops in portfolio values on paper.

The Australian market dropped about 1.3% today and the US market is expected to decrease by about 3% tonight. Assuming the US market yields some ground tonight, the Australian market will likely drop a little more tomorrow too.

As the Trump administration policies become clearer, the markets will stabilise.

So in the meantime, we'd like to make 2 points:

1. We recommend and implement diversified portfolios - which means not all eggs are in the same basket. Nearly all recommended portfolios hold some shares; and also property, fixed interest, cash, infrastructure and even gold. Effectively this means that whilst the media might report that "billions wiped off the sharemarket" to make good headlines - the reality for you is likely to be only a small and short term downward move of 1-2% in your portfolio.


Irrespective of the US election result and short-term nervousness, we believe that returns will continue to be a little slow in the next 2-3 years in this very low interest rate environment.

2. Investment Strategy. This next period of uncertainty can be a great time to buy investments that have suffered a short term drop in value. In other words, for the same one dollar invested, you can buy a lot more apples. It reinforces the strategies of regular investment to buy the dips, dollar cost averaging and monthly superannuation contributions through employer and salary sacrifice contributions.
We will keep updates coming as this global shift in the political environment unfolds.

Finally, we believe in worrying about the things you can control. Love your family, follow your passions, earn to your potential, manage your tax, pay off your debts, and spend your money on the things that truly matter to you. The markets will always just be the markets. They go up and they go down...and they go up more than they go down.

By all means, call us at any time - 1300 272 843.
