Franklin Templeton Investments – 5 Things

Franklin Templeton Investments have released an article which outlines five things to consider when there is volatility in stock markets, such as there is at the moment.

A summary of the key points is as follows:

  • Selling out of investments into cash may mean you are worse off over the long term.
  • Dollar cost averaging (investing on a regular basis) makes it easier to cope with volatility in markets.
  • In times of volatility, it is a good idea to stop and review exactly where your portfolio is sitting, and whether any changes should be made to ensure your investments continue to be well diversified.
  • Tuning out of the day to day media headlines, and instead focusing on your long term investment goals, can help to put things in perspective.
  • Believe your investment beliefs, and doubt your doubts – don’t do the opposite.
