Cuffelinks Showcase 2016

Welcome to the Cuffelinks Showcase 2016, a free ebook exclusively for subscribers.

While many years pass without long-term historical significance, 2016 will always be remembered for Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. We do not know the consequences for investment markets, but as with the experiment of Quantitative Easing and record low interest rates, they add to the complexity and uncertainty of investment decisions.

It makes the need for independent and informed expert opinions even more important as investors plan their retirement savings knowing we are living longer than ever amid tight budget constraints.

Our team has reviewed the Cuffelinks archive of hundreds of articles published in 2016. This selection focusses on enduring insights that stand the test of time, rather than articles discussing markets or regulations which subsequent events may have superseded. Since Cuffelinks started in February 2013, over 300 market professionals have written articles for us.

My thanks for being part of the Cuffelinks community, now reaching 17,000 subscribers to the weekly newsletter and 30,000 regular visitors to the website. We recently exceeded two million pageviews of our website. We know from our Reader Surveys that we have a highly engaged readership from diverse backgrounds.

Thanks also to our prestigious group of corporate sponsors, whose commitment to financial education and knowledge allows Cuffelinks to remain free for its readers while our range of services continues to expand. We will continue to inform your investing and planning decisions in 2017.
