Market Update

You will no doubt have seen the recent news coverage of an increase in volatility in global stock markets.  It is important to remember several things at these times:

1 – Short term market volatility is an inevitable part of investing and occurs frequently

2 – Short term volatility makes headlines, long term growth does not

3 – Markets have risen strongly in recent months before the volatility

4 – Fundamentally the global economy still looks strong

5 – Investing is about the long term and these are often the best times to invest as share prices are, by definition, cheaper in the short term

Remember the words of Warren Buffett ‘Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful’
