26 - Investments: Review of 2020 and looking ahead to 2021

Wesleyan's Director of Investments Martin Lawrence talks to James Heaney, Investment Communications Manager, about 2020’s market-shaping events – including the impact of COVID-19 and Brexit – the team’s strategy, fund performance trends, and what they’re expecting for the year ahead. 

Please note that past performance is not a reliable guide to future performance and the value of your investment and income can go down as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested. Capital at risk.
