Some of you may have read that, as of yesterday afternoon, I have gone to cash inside my SIPP. This isn’t because I have any faith in cash: outside the SIPP, I’m converting cash into non-market assets as fast as my obstructive French bank will allow. Here and there, I’ve bought a few Pounds as the Quid weakened slightly. But mainly at the moment, I’m in sort of stasis mode: regrouping, if you like, ready for whatever it is we all need to be ready for. Continue reading
