Many investors like leaving their money in the hands of expert fund managers, instead of having to pick the shares themselves when inflation is high. Fund managers have seen recessions and inflation before, and they manage your underlying investments. They’ll make the day-to-day decisions and can find opportunities that you might miss if you weren’t invested.
History has shown us that through the various challenges that come along – war, recession, inflation and political uncertainty – investing has been one of the best ways to grow your money and help shelter it from inflation.
Think in decades, not days. Markets have always got through recessions and volatility but also be mindful past performance is not a guide to the future. Speak to your adviser to understand where you’re invested.
