Investments: What can we control in a time of crisis?

Worried about falling investments?


Reeves’ core message is do not panic, we have faced economic turmoil and pandemics before; in the long term the portfolios and the markets will recover. The question is: how long it will take for the markets to bounce back? This is something we do not know and cannot control. What we can control is the asset allocation; funds selected, and the level of risk taken.

Reeves has a plan in place, we have been more conservative in our decision making in the past few years. Our portfolios have been set-up where we have been overweight in cash and safer assets such as bonds for some time; because of this our portfolios haven’t dropped as significantly when we compare ourselves to the FTSE 100 & other UK Advisers. 

As you may know, Reeves has started to execute the plan and we have made our first batch of changes to capitalise on ‘buying cheap’ for Tactical clients. This is to capitalise on assets that have dropped significantly; we have confidence in these holdings and believe they will perform over the long term. Now is an opportune time to purchase, it is the best buying opportunity we have had in recent history. 

If markets continue to fall, or, if we see opportunity for you to benefit, we will send you a new proposal. The investment team are meeting daily and making calls as to what we do next for each client bank whether they are – Adventurous / Balanced / Cautious, or, Retired, 5 years to retiring or 20 years to retiring!
