The Day-After Aug 24th, 2015 'Black Monday'
We are all witnessing the increased volatility in the financial markets and it is
natural to wonder how this may impact our wealth. While we at Millenia Asset
Management International SA remain vigilant and continue to monitor market
developments, we do not see a need for portfolio adjustments at this time.
In that regard, we wanted to highlight a few important aspects:
1. There is no free lunch
The reason we expect higher long-term returns on stocks and high yield bonds
than on cash and US Sovereign Bonds is because they have greater volatility.
There is no free lunch in the financial markets, and we have to accept volatility in
times like this in order to earn the expected higher long-term returns.
Millenia Asset Management International SA takes a strategic, long-term view on

financial and personal circumstances.
2. Market timing does not work
Market timing is the holy grail of investing.

While this may not be the case on a day-to-day basis, a mix of different types of
assets provides a smoother and more stable ride for your portfolio.
As an example, while stocks have performed poorly in the past few weeks, most
of our bond and alternative funds have provided positive returns.
The time frame is extremely short, and no one knows how the funds will perform
in the next few weeks or months, but it is another testament to the benefits of
As your financial fiduciaries, we care deeply about your financial well-being, and it
is in times like these that it is important to stay calm and refrain from making
decisions that may be detrimental to your wealth.
In the meantime, our dedicated investment operations team will monitor for
rebalancing opportunities that may add value to your portfolio.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact your advisor if you have any
questions or concerns.
