Across global stock markets the spread of coronavirus at the beginning of 2020 initially resulted in an increase in volatility, as investors focused on the likely impact on global economic growth. Whilst there are still levels of uncertainty, global governments and central banks have continued to provide support to help mitigate the economic slowdown, and global interest rates remain historically low. More recently, the successful roll-out of the vaccine in the UK, US, Europe and other countries, has provided further optimism of a continued recovery in economic activity. Global equity markets have subsequently recovered strongly, and are in many cases close to, or above, pre-coronavirus market levels.
During times of market volatility it is important to focus on your longer term savings objectives and avoid making snap decisions - read our volatile market article >
