Investing in Times of Uncertainty

The last year has seen some turbulence on the markets prompted by Brexit uncertainty and now COVID-19. Economic and geopolitical events always prompt investors to question whether now is a good time to invest or to remain invested.

In this article we look at some key events going back to the year 2000 and how the markets reacted. We discuss market volatility and take a look at the bigger picture.

In particular we cover five key points which can be summarised as follows:

  • Adopting the longer – term view
  • Diversifying your portfolio
  • The right strategy
  • Finding the right balance
  • Communication is key

As always – if you wish to discuss any of the areas within this article, or wider financial planning then do let us know.
