Coronavirus – Markets throwing a tantrum or have global markets actually slowed down?
The opinions on Coronavirus seems to split a room, you have the camp that is predicting the end of life as we know it (at least in the short run). Then we have those who have armed themselves with an extra hanky and are going about their day to day life undeterred by the fuss.
Regardless of which camp you sit in, the real facts are that large global markets have just been shaken and are currently in pain, to quote Warren Buffett ““Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy and Greedy When Others Are Fearful”. Could now be a good time to ignore the mass hysteria and lock in some great valuations on investments whether that is to top up your existing portfolios of standard equities/bonds/mutual funds or to take advantage of some very attractive rates offered on structured products?

Dura Capital have just launched their most recent two products, both of these products are capable of producing returns even if the market was to reduce (by up to 25% on years 8) from strike.
Dura Capital’s recent plans are offering extremely competitive terms at 7.31% p.a. and 8.60% p.a. (T&C’s apply). These coupons are significantly higher than they have been in recent months, there are many reasons for why the coupons are currently attractive, but the largest driver is an increase in volatility.
