- August being another challenging month for investors as share markets around the globe lost ground and displayed considerable day to day volatility;
- How the Australian share market was not immune to the weakness globally with the ASX200 Accumulation Index falling by 7.8%, its worst monthly return since October 2008;
- How the concerns regarding China were the dominant influence on markets in August; and
- How MLC’s multi-asset portfolios are positioned.
