On a new episode of the ifa show, host Neil Griffiths is joined by special guest and head of asset manager Milford’s Australian business, Kristine Brooks.
Neil and Kristine look at the Australian markets over the last 12-18 months and what’s to come as the country emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s been an incredible period,” Kristine said.

Kristine said that at Milford, the team has been committed to clients’ investment performances.
“We also turn our sights to downside protection and making sure that our portfolios are positioned well, if we are to hit periods of volatility, “ she said.
“For that reason, we’ve definitely seen some strong out-performance over the period which is great.”
