Keep calm and carry on investing


Despite the chaos and confusion caused by the coronavirus pandemic, staying focused and calm is the key to investment ’success’. That’s the message from Balchug Capital founder and CEO David Amarayan this week as he assesses how HNWI investors, their advisers and family offices should respond to the recent market turmoil.

The importance of keeping a cool head and holding your nerve is echoed by Chris Andrews, co-manager of the top performing SilverCross Global Small-Cap fund, who points out that while predicting the future is impossible, history can act as pointer to what lies ahead. And whenever equity markets have witnessed previous falls of this magnitude, Andrews says they have almost always been followed by recoveries which generate significant returns over the following three years.

Those in need of a little more reassurance – especially when it comes to the health of their pension pots – can now turn to a new guide put together by seven individual bodies with responsibility for protecting UK pensions, including the The Pension Protection Fund (PPF), The Pensions Regulator (TPR), and The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The guide outlines all the protections that are in place and directs savers where they can go to seek free, impartial guidance should they have any further questions.

Sticking with pensions, we also have news of a new initiative by The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) inviting pension schemes, the wider financial services industry, the public and stakeholders to give their views on the practical ways the retirement savings sector can address climate risk. Evidence and views can be submitted via the PLSA website until Friday 14 August.

By Allan Lane (pictured), Algo-Chain – We live in strange times; many countries have seen business come to a complete and utter standstill and yet in many instances the equity markets continue with gay abandon.
