Small-time investors should be looking to diversify, according to a new investment guide from AWD Chase De Vere.
Aimed at helping investors make sense of the current market conditions, AWD's free guide, entitled “Investing in Volatile Markets”, includes background information on the credit crunch and details the various kinds of strategies investors might use in a volatile economic environment, according to the degree of risk involved.
A comprehensive range of asset classes are discussed including shares, OEICs, unit trusts, bonds, gilts, structured products, property and cash.
Martyn Laverick, head of group marketing at AWD Chase de Vere, says that investors with a small or limited portfolio should now be looking to “diversify and rebalance.”
He says: “Looking at the global and UK economies, investors need to understand what is happening to their ISAs, pensions, equities, bonds, cash, property or OEICS.
“With better understanding of the causes of the turmoil and the pros and cons of investing in a particular sector or product, it is easier to make investment decisions for the short-term future.”IFAonline
