Survey shows Bitcoin and crypto will provide better returns than stocks in 2022 premium
A global poll has shown that Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies and NFTs are more trusted than stocks to provide investors with better returns in 2022. Around 6,000 people on LinkedIn have taken part in the survey since the start of the year, which is monitored by over 146,600. The results show that 30% of respondents believe ‘another cryptocurrency’ (other than Bitcoin) will give the best results; 25% say Bitcoin and NFTs (non-fungible tokens); and 20% Read More

Private funding is urgently needed to combat climate change premium
Mobilising private capital is absolutely essential in tackling climate change. The last seven years have been the hottest on record, and 2021 was the fifth-warmest year, according to the Copernicus Climate Change Service. Last year we saw more extreme weather incidents, such as the winter storms in Texas, the heatwave on the U.S. west coast and Kenya’s two straight failed rain seasons. The situation is becoming more and serious on a global scale and is happening at a much faster Read More

Latest Bitcoin flash crash – a buying opportunity? premium
The price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will robustly rebound after a sudden drop on Wednesday, after minutes from the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting were unveiled. In a matter of hours, the price of Bitcoin dropped $3,000, from over $47,000 to just under $44,000. The Fed minutes heightened predictions that the U.S. central bank will now act faster to hike interest rates to combat surging inflation. As such, there was a knee jerk sell-off on Wall Street and the Read More

Bitcoin to be made legal tender in three more nations this year? premium
I’m putting it out there. It’s my view that Bitcoin will become legal tender in another three countries this year. Over the weekend, the President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele posted a number of tweets relating to his Bitcoin predictions, such as “2 more countries will adopt it as legal tender,” and that it will reach $100,000 this year. Indeed, El Salvador made history in September last year by becoming the first country in the world to make the Read More

Inflation is now investors’ biggest concern in 2022 premium
The debate as to whether inflation is ‘transitory’ or not is now not in play and investors should be reviewing their investments. Last week the Bank of England hiked interest rates for the first time in over three years in a bid to tackle mounting inflation, with the Monetary Policy Committee voting 8-1 in favour of the increase to 0.25%. This followed on from the U.S. Federal Reserve lining up for faster rate hikes sooner than forecast as inflation soars. The central bank Read More

The importance of ESG to every investor premium
On news that global sustainable fund assets have almost doubled in the six months through to September, I believe every investor now needs exposure to environmental, social and governance (ESG) investments in order to grow wealth over the long-term. Global ESG assets are on course to surpass the $53 trillion mark by 2025, as per a Bloomberg Intelligence report, representing over a third of the $140.5 trillion in projected total assets under management. Back in January last Read More

70% of people aren’t saving adequately for their retirement premium
Looking back at this year’s stats, around 70% of working-age people who sought advice from deVere this year to date were not saving enough for their retirement. This is an incredibly high number. These mainly British savers, who we took on as a company over the past year, were not saving adequately in order to live a comparable lifestyle in retirement. When we first meet new clients, a comprehensive study is undertaken of their present financial situation. Read More

Covid variant will cause markets to wobble in the short term premium
Financial markets will temporarily wobble on news of the new Covid variant, but concerns will be quickly shrugged off. The new strain of coronavirus was detected earlier this week in southern Africa, weighing on global markets on Thursday.  Travel stocks, hospitality companies and bank stocks bore the brunt of the announcement. The World Health Organization is meeting to determine whether the so-called B.1.1.529 strain should be designated a variant of “interest” or of Read More

Investors should get ready for market correction premium
Investors need to brace for a 10% market correction over the next month, as they make sense of the Fed’s stance on interest rates. The U.S. central bank is forecast to announce it will begin to taper its $120 billion monthly bond purchases on Wednesday, and the real story for the markets is how the Federal Reserve will talk about inflation. Indeed, inflation is becoming a much bigger issue than most analysts had predicted, so investors will be grappling to fight the trend of Read More

deVere to double its commitment to environmental investments within 5 years premium
I’m proud to announce we are doubling our commitment into environmental, social and governance (ESG) investments. At the start of 2021, we said we would aim to have $1bn in socially responsible investment vehicles within five years.  Yet now the goal is $2bn or more within that time. The news come ahead of COP26 in Glasgow starting at the weekend, where world leaders, industry chiefs and experts will come together in a bid to prevent the worst effects Read More

The crypto investors of today are tomorrow’s Masters of the Metaverse premium
As Facebook unveils plans to hire 10,000 people in the EU to develop a so-called ‘metaverse’, I believe we’ll see today’s crypto investors being the “Masters of the Metaverse”, which will potentially alter how we live, interact and do business. According to a Facebook blog, “the metaverse could unlock access to new creative, social and economic opportunities.” So, what is the metaverse? It provides a virtual parallel to physical reality where Read More
