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.

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.
