Statement March 2020

Thursday 5 March 2020

As you will be aware, the recent outbreak of coronavirus and subsequent media coverage around the world has caused a sharp decline in global stock markets, after several months of positive performance. The market is clearly responding to new information as it becomes known.

A reminder of our advice at times like these.

Long-term investments do not need to be adjusted constantly when times are challenging. Our role is to educate and reassure, helping you take a long-term perspective on how you view market volatility and look beyond the headlines avoiding knee-jerk decisions about your investments.

We design and maintain investment portfolios to have characteristics that will provide the highest probability of preserving capital to meet short term requirements and the highest probability of growing capital to meet the known and unknown events that lie ahead.

Our message remains to continue to take a long-term view and focus on your plan and future goals. If you require further discussion about this or have any questions please get in touch with our team.
