2. How to decide between inflation and economic stress?
3. Is the market too optimistic?
4. Random musings.

CIGP acts as an agent when recommending or distributing investment products. The product issuer is not an affiliate of CIGP. CIGP is an independent intermediary, because: (i) we do not receive fees, commissions, or any other monetary benefits, provided by any party in relation to our distribution of any investment product to you; and (ii) we do not have any close links or other legal or economic relationships with product issuers, or receive any non-monetary benefits from any party, which are likely to impair our independence to favour any particular investment product, any class of investment products or any product issuer. Neither us nor our group related companies shall benefit from product origination or distribution from the issuers or providers, whether in monetary or non-monetary terms. We do not provide any discount of fees and charges.
