Investment Considerations for Volatile Markets

Date Posted: 15.02.2016

 The recent equity market sell-off and heightened volatility has led to increased tension for investors. While the reasons for market sell-offs are always different we know that they will be a constant feature of investing in equities. Falls of more than 10% are actually quite common in global markets. The unpredictable timing of such falls is one of the challenges that investors will continue to face.

 

To help mitigate the impact of this, we continue to recommend that clients are appropriately diversified. This means having allocations to a range of asset classes, geographies, sectors and holdings within portfolios. This helps dampen volatility at times of market turbulence and can help with the emotional stresses of seeing falls in the value of your investments.


At times like these individual investors should focus on their own personal requirements and ensuring that their investment strategies continue to be aligned to their own needs. We believe that a financial and investment plan helps put context around investments so that investors can look through short-term issues and focus on the longer term requirements for themselves and their families.
