Looking for a smoother ride in choppy waters

But there is a risk here. America still relies on the rest of the world as much as the rest of the world relies on America – attempting to reset the terms of global trade too hard in America’s favour might derail the economies of other countries.

So, what can you do to protect investments you already have against the volatility that we are experiencing, well firstly and most importantly make sure that your investment portfolios are as diversified as possible, across Asset Class, Sector and Country. Don’t be tempted to put all your eggs in one basket.

Look for Global dividend (income) funds, that are paying good income. Don’t be tempted to panic and sell funds when the markets are turbulent, remember the long-term potential, yes volatility can be scary, but patience will pay off, investing is for the medium to long term, 5 years plus. It is not a get rich quick scheme.

For investors looking to enter the market, the drop in the markets offers an excellent buying opportunity and realistically is the only option to achieve growth greater than inflation, as interest rates across the EU and the UK look to remain well below inflation for the foreseeable future.

So, if you are new to investing or would just like less risk and a smoother ride, there are investments out there that apply smoothing thereby giving you some cushion against volatility. This is an investment option so you can sleep easy at night.

Unfortunately, once you take up residence in Spain, the tax incentives provided by the UK schemes fall away and the income and gains may become wholly taxable under Spanish law.

When you move to a new country, it is a major change and should prompt a complete review of your wealth management to ensure it is as effective as possible for your new life. Similarly, if you have lived in Spain for a number of years, it would be wise to have a full review of your saving/investment/pension position to ensure optimum benefits. We take a look at some of the most common investment types and what your move to Spain might mean for your finances.
