Markets will either rise, fall or stay the same immediately after the election. This short term ‘movement’ has always been unknowable and is simply an investment truth.
A well-designed diversified investment portfolio is built with this simple wisdom at its core. It is well spread from an asset, industrial sector and geographical perspective to weather all market storms.
We recommend that you avoid making long-term investment decisions when listening to the dramatic noise from the media. It is in many “experts” interests to create this noise and do all they can to remove the clarity in your investment strategy.
You will remember the panic predictions in the wake of the Brexit vote. We did not change the portfolio of any of our clients on seeing the Brexit result last June.
