This week is full of event risk; the US interest rates announcement, the market expects a 25-basis point increase, with an 85% probability, US and North Korea summit, US CPI, UK unemployment, ECB committee meeting and Italian policy uncertainty.

Extremely wealthy people don't invest in ETF's. They don't buy properties from estate agent listings… They buy into private deals. They buy businesses before they even list on the stock market…
