To say that the last few years for people invested in equity related investments have been tough, would be the understatement of the century. Markets have not performed well, and “flat” returns have been the order of the day. The amount of noise and bad news that we have been bombarded with has reached unprecedented levels, this has probably been exacerbated by the amount of fake news that has also been flooding the market.

Even normally rational investors are starting to lose patience and are contemplating moving their hard-earned money to cash. In June, I wrote an article about the importance of doing nothing and in these turbulent times it is becoming more and more important to stick to the game plan, knee-jerk reactions and realisation of losses will be unproductive in the long run.

Whilst it is very difficult to “sit on your hands” when you are surrounded by “chaos” unless the underlying fundamentals on which you based your plan have changed, your plan needs to remain in place.

In these times the abovementioned quote of “True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint.” and the words of Rudyard Kipling “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs…” are extremely important if your long-term plan and financial wellbeing are to remain intact.

Kind regards,
