Pro Investment Managers Reveal the Best Tips this 2019
Every start of the year, whatever industry you work in, one of the first things you look forward to is knowing the trends for that year. For example, if you were in the culinary industry, you would want to know what the best flavors for the year would be, or in fashion, what color would be the trendiest.
The same is true for investments as well, as mutual fund advisors claim that 2019 will be a considerably volatile year for investors. It might spell trouble for a lot of people, but if you were to play your cards right, you could still find a way to end the year on a positive note.
Here, we explore some of the Golden Rules you need to follow to safely and wisely invest this year.
Observe Your Portfolio
One of the main things investor should keep in mind is always to keep an eye on their portfolios. Monitoring your investment portfolio will help you determine whether or not you’re closer to your financial goals. In this way, you won’t get blindsided by any changes during this volatile year and keep sticking to your investment strategy. In case there is such a change, it would be best to act accordingly.
But it should also be noted that you cannot change your portfolio schemes at the drop of a hat. When it comes to volatility, it would be unwise to react to every single drop or rise. Instead, try to mix your portfolio with bonds and stocks to minimize your loss.
Keep an Eye Out for International Funds
Many advisers agree that international funds might be a great idea to observe for 2019. Allocating some of your investments to global markets will be helpful just in case the local market ever goes down.
However, you should still exercise caution when doing this. Don’t go all in, or shove a large sum into international funds just as a precaution. The very reason for investing in offshore funds is to diversify your investments so you won’t be putting all your hard-earned money in one basket.
Don’t forget to observe your entire portfolio as it would be unwise to focus on one venture wherein you put in a large percentage of your investments without looking for other alternative investment schemes.
Don’t stop SIP’s
When it comes to equity investments, it would be unwise to stop following your systematic investment plan just because you learned that it was going to be a volatile year. Stick to what you have planned, but also don’t fail to react when you need to.
Another thing to keep in mind is that elections are almost just around the corner. It usually results in an unusually high or drastically low fluctuation. Whichever it is, it will most likely be temporary, and experts advise that you should keep calm and continue your investment plans.
Stick to Your Asset Allocation
A final piece of advice from the experts is to stay true to whatever your asset allocation is. Back in 2018, some markets were undergoing corrections, which means that it’s likely that some of your equity allocations have gone down.
Experts reveal it would be best to invest more in equities despite the market volatility. It will get you back on track to your planned allocation. However, you should also take note not to make tactical calls when you think it’s too risky.
Financial advisers say to make sure your risk profile is in line with your asset allocation and stick to the basics to avoid panic buying.
