Issue 2 – June 2020

Wealth planning is far from simple at present. In this issue of the Marathon Wealth newsletter we consider the effects of COVID-19 on financial markets in terms of value lost and recovered. In many cases equity values have been entirely recaptured and there are even cases of record highs, prompting many to ask whether a crisis ever actually existed. However, uncertainty remains and it is therefore prudent to look after your financial health and wellbeing at this time. This newsletter offers a few pointers to keep your financial emotions in check and also advise on optimal estate planning for forward-thinking investors.
