Main topic

It’s been a pretty terrible start to the year for investors.

The FTSE 100 officially entered bear market territory, falling by 20% from its peak last year.

Investors are worried about a slowdown in China’s economy and the very low price of oil.

Why should you, as an investor, hold your nerve at a time like this?

Martin explains why volatility is a normal part of equity investing, how market timing can go horribly wrong, that diversified portfolios are not experiencing the massive falls being reported in newspapers, and how Financial Planners add substantial value to investment portfolios at times like these.
