As 2016 unfolds, it’s worth looking at some financial predictions from various UK and US experts
UK and US Financial Predictions For 2016
Will Stock Markets ‘Lift Off’ In 2016
One of the most informative UK financial sites is Citywire Money. In his short video, Gavin Lumsden, Editor of The Lolly, provides his financial predictions with an overview of the world economy and investments markets, with a little help from British astronaut Tim Peake.
Financial Predictions US-Style
If the expression “when the United States sneezes, the World catches a cold” has any truth to it, which it certainly did following the financial crisis of 2008, it’s worth having a quick look at some financial predictions from over the pond. It makes for some scary viewing.
Biggest Stock Market Crash In History Coming In 2016 - Robert Kiyosaki
2016 Predictions Gold, Silver, War and Collapse - Gerald Celente
Why The Crash Of 2016 Will Happen - Thom Hartmann
Whilst the financial predictions above may contain some interesting and poignant observations, it’s probably fair to say they are well buried beneath the ‘shock horror’ style of reporting that Americans seem to love.
If a stockmarket crash is coming, one of the best ways to protect your money is to diversify into other uncorrelated asset classes, such as lending.
The most obvious conclusion to draw from all four videos above and many other financial predictions is that nothing is certain, let alone predictable!
Wishing you a prosperous 2016.

AJ Bell Is Often The Best Value SIPP For Stockmarket Assets
Over time, charges can wipe out a huge part of your fund. We like AJ Bell because there are no set-up costs. If you hold passive funds, which is our preference, or shares, investment trusts, EFTs, gilts or bonds, you pay one small fixed fee no matter how large your fund. And when you come to draw your benefits either as occasional drawdown or UFPLS payments, there's a small charge for the whole year no matter how many times you access your money (many SIPP and SSAS providers charge more than this for each payment). However, you should always compare charges in detail, because AJ Bell could be more expensive than other providers, depending on the type of stockmarket assets you hold.
Get Valuable SIPP And SSAS Insights Emailed Directly To Your Inbox Every Monday
As SIPPclub neither advises on, nor arranges, nor recommends specific investments or strategies, we're unable to say whether a SIPP or SSAS or any investment within it is right for you. Ultimately, it’s your money and your decision, and you should only proceed once you're satisfied you've undertaken sufficient due diligence. If you need advice, you should speak to your trusted adviser, or you could find a local adviser from Unbiased.co.uk. Alternatively, we'd be pleased to introduce to a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.
