Investors untroubled by upcoming EU referendum

When Lewis Carroll helped Humpty Dumpty explain the practice of combining words in ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ in 1871, I doubt he ever expected there would be a referendum on a portmanteau 150 years later.

But that’s what we have: Brexit. Two meanings packed up into one word.

As the debate heats up, we asked you if you would adjust your investments in any way. A resounding majority of 60% said they would leave their investment portfolios unaltered. This seems a sensible stance; no one really knows how either outcome will impact stock markets, although some volatility should definitely be expected.

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. However, the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
