For  the long-term investor in risk markets, does this graph show that the Covid 19 effect is starting to look like a passing phase?? 

If you have been invested in Global markets, High Tech sectors or even Micro businesses, you will now be back up to where you were a year ago. 

Global Smaller Companies are lagging behind, being 10% down on the year, but the trendline is quite steep. 

The only market in this graph that is showing serious under performance is the FTSE100.  

Although I am a serious optimist and see the markets recovering and moving forward as M & A and markets developments start to benefit entrepreneurs, this snapshot does show that investors need to be seriously diversified, especially not concentrating their assets in the UK.  

Investing wisely matters.
