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.
