How to Cut Your Investment Risk

April 26, 2016

Whether you are new to the world of investment or an individual with existing commitments just looking for investment advice that you can trust, cutting your investment risk is likely to be high on your list of priorities. Whilst it is important to note that no investment is completely risk free, making the calculated decisions you need to ensure that your money is being channelled down the right routes and will in due course be returned with dividends is vital.

As a leading provider of professional investment advice throughout Derbyshire, we actively help investors from all walks of life make sound financial decisions, but how can you draw the line between making a great return and avoiding significant losses?

Start with a solid foundation

Beginning your investment journey with a solid foundation is integral to your success whether you are looking to make a modest monthly contribution or invest a decent lump sum. Known throughout the industry as ‘asset allocation’, building a foundation that can be expanded or scaled back as you or the market sees fit is vital and diversity is key here.

Allocate your assets accordingly

If you invest all your assets into one company or one market, the risk factor is heightened considerably, after all if that one company fails or one market fluctuates so too will your investment. Aim to utilise a combination of investment types across multiple companies and markets to retain the freedom you need whatever the changing financial climate throws at you.

Listen to the experts

For investors, taking advice from a qualified financial adviser is often seen as an added expense, but thanks to their market knowledge and tailor-made approach, enlisting independent assistance is the investment your investment needs to grow in the most risk-free way possible.
