It’s important to review your investments regularly to make sure they’re on target to meet your objectives and remain in line with your attitude to investment risk, particularly in these volatile times. The need for professional advice is now greater than ever as many high street banks and building society’s no longer offer advice, not even to existing customers.
We see many new clients, who haven’t seen their original Advisor for years, believe they’re in low risk investments when they’re not, or have been disappointed with their returns or even made significant losses. That’s why regular and pro-active reviews are essential.
Previously good funds can start to underperform spectacularly for a variety of reasons; asset classes once deemed safe havens (such as Gilts and Government Bonds) suddenly look more of a risk as sovereign nations have accumulated more debt. And while many investments allow for free fund switching, many people never receive advice on how or when to utilise this benefit, with their investment suffering as a result.
This is where you’ll find real added value from Slater Financial. We believe it’s more important than ever to have an advisory process with information and advice readily available, and our online systems and secure messaging service offer precisely that whenever and wherever you need it.
