Market Commentary

  1. Commentary Suspended

    I'm going to be concentrating on my current portfolio for a while so I'm reluctantly suspending my market commentary.  Normal service will be resumed once things (and the markets) have calmed down.  Might take a while.

  2. On the Bounce

    2021 has seen a bounce-back in venture equity investment.  Some of this is post 2020 COVID related but is there something else going on?

  3. Social Innovation

    Innovation has helped us ameliorate the pandemic but the social distancing response may be our downfall. As the world struggles to emerge from the pandemic, arguments rage about whether we can beat it or just learn to live with it.  Whatever happens with COVID-19 one thing we can be sure of is that it will not be the last pandemic.
