BE READY TO POUNCE
Longer- term, we think investors should take advantage of any weakness in global equities or income-generating assets. We expect the equity bull market to continue for another 12 to 24 months.

Valuations are starting to look attractive again, especially for local blue chips that have borne the brunt of recent selling. Investors can take this opportunity to look out for quality stocks for longer-term investment.
