The recent (temporary) market volatility is to be expected and nothing unusual, regardless of what the talking heads, bold headlines or ‘experts’ claim. Managing a family’s life savings and providing life guidance is a serious job, which we treat with the highest regard. Our investment portfolios are appropriately created and designed for the long term. Clients without advisers may do the wrong thing, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons. As your adviser, our role is to guide you and ensure you remember that what is happening is nothing unusual.
If you are still lucky enough to be investing during these times (most of you are), you’re buying during a market sale.
If on the other hand you need to be taking income from your investments, it is even more important that you stay disciplined and stick to the plan.
To conclude we don’t time markets, no one can, it’s a fool’s errand. We look after clients for life and ensure they’re set for life. Financial advice is a noble profession, we are here to assist and guide you through the complex financial landmines we all face.
We completely understand that you will be worried and feel uncomfortable. This is a natural reaction when you see the value of your investments temporarily fall. However, we’re not concerned about temporary market volatility, neither should you be.
If you have any questions, as always we’re here to help.
Know we are thinking about your family’s future and we have a profound understanding about financial history.
