There is no easy answer. There’s an old rule that states something along these lines: investors should subtract their age from 100 and according to that they will have an idea what to put into volatile assets (shares and property, for example) and what to put into the less volatile asset classes (cash, bonds).

My company, STENMARK, which was launched in 2011, designs and manufactures fine jewellery, using precious metals and precious stones. My designs have a bold, modern sensibility which I hope will appeal to a woman who sees the purchase of fine jewellery as a luxury accessory buy, not just a special occasion jewellery purchase. As well as buying a luxury accessory, I try to convey that the benefits of purchase are that a fine jewel has lasting and intrinsic value, in addition to the beauty, emotional attachment and the pleasure that purchase of the jewel will provide.

“The Well” is the much anticipated new offering from the Tord Gustavsen Quartet. Norwegian pianist Gustavsen made a huge impact earlier this century with a series of albums which set the jazz world on fire: “Changing Places”, “The Ground”, “Being There” & “Restored, Returned”. The first three kept to a piano trio format; the latter to an expanded quintet with a female vocalist & Tore Brunborg on saxophone. The Well is different once again, omitting vocals but keeping the expressive brass work of Brunborg intact.
Director Todd Phillips became a Hollywood household name thanks to “The Hangover” – currently he’s prepping for the third and most likely final instalment of the series.

Will keep you updated when I know more about the cast.
