Throughout the course of 2023, local financial planners, Holland Hahn & Wills, will be exploring the ways in which people can improve their investment experience through a series of articles. 

Katie Lovatt, the firm's head of marketing and operations, today focuses on investment news and the importance of looking beyond daunting headlines.

At Holland Hahn & Wills Financial Planning we rarely discuss investment headlines with our clients. 

Daily news is enough to test anyone's resolve. From inflation to oil, there is undoubtedly a pessimistic article, whether on screen or in print, to make us question our investment decisions. This media influence can make you feel overwhelmed and anxious, and the constant barrage of alarming headlines can provoke a strong emotional response from even the most seasoned investor. 

During these uncertain times, it is wise to look beyond the headlines and focus on the long term objective rather than the latest investment fad. As an example, if you had invested £10,000 in a globally diversified portfolio in January 2000 – and stayed invested through market downturns, terrorist attacks and banking crises - 20 years later, the portfolio would have been worth £29,000*. Not bad for just sitting in your seat. A sensible, well diversified investment approach gives you the ability to drown out the noise as you are not concentrated in just one investment product. 

When faced with short term issues, it is easy to lose sight of the long term benefit of investing. There is no crystal ball, but a trusted financial adviser will consider your goals and your attitude to risk and will find an appropriate asset allocation to help you achieve a better investment experience. In this scenario, the adviser is akin to a mentor or coach, offering expertise and guidance to help you stay focused and maintain perspective. 

Are you anxious about your investments? Now may be the time to seek a second opinion.
