How could the US Presidential Election affect us?

A topical point at the moment is the US Presidential election, which is affecting markets all over the world in different ways.  Fund Managers are watching the race between these 2 candidates very closely (most investments in the world are managed funds).

If you have an investment in any MLC product, be assured that they have built strategies within their portfolios to mitigate market behaviour and whilst not fool proof (as no one has a crystal ball) they are a risk the fund manager is aware of. 

On other matters, we are at the tail end of the “It’s in the bag” campaign, where we have been inundated with bags and donations.  We are finalising the donations and will be delivering them to Anglicare within the next few weeks.  We will keep you posted with pictures and updates at my next post.  I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed; your generosity is appreciated.

Finally, if you are looking for something to do on the 15th of October (this Saturday) and the weather will be glorious, come down to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.  Greven & Co, in conjunction with Glenside Lions, will be holding a second hand book store as part of COTA’s every generation festival.  There are quite a few unique stalls to help COTA promote their organisation in a fun way,  between 10am and 2.30pm in the Economic Garden (about a 50 metre flat walk from the friends gate entrance off Plane Tree Drive).  Guided tours (free) are taking place every 30 minutes from the Fete site, so come along for a good family day out with lots to see, eat, buy and do, say “hi” at our stall, I would love to see you there.  Click her for further details.

Be kind to each other
