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 views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. 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. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
