Just nine months ago, January started the year with a strong performance that quickly turned later in the first quarter. Market returns in Q2 were very mixed, and that mixture has now continued into Q3. Of course, all we can say at this point is that Q4 will undoubtedly be interesting. With our humming economy and the rest of the world mostly struggling through its issues of Brexit, trade, elections, etc., one thing is clear: we must continue to keep a long-term view. And, that long-term view generally should include continuing economic growth which should lead us to positive investment returns over extended periods of time.
As always, we look forward to any questions you may have. Thank you for your trust in Vista.
