Posted on

Concern about the Ukraine is growing, Russia is flexing its muscles. Should we worry about another cold war? The Middle East is in turmoil, Iraq and Syria are now under serious threat of extremist control, Israel and Palestine are at war. Australia is under threat from terrorists attack by returning jihadists, and is considering helping the US again in Iraq. We could get very worried…..

The human dimension

of these International conflicts is undeniably tragic and on reflection makes one feel very fortunate that we live in such a stable democracy no matter what we may sometimes think of our politicians. It also may make us slightly nervous about our financial security in such an uncertain world.

What are the consequences going to be for our investment portfolios? What will be the impact on our share holdings particularly International holdings?

In reality there is always uncertainty in the world and consequently in investment portfolios. Markets react daily to headlines, sentiment and world events. We can get caught up very easily in these current events and lose sight of the big picture.

We know that in the long run diversification into quality assets and staying the course through periods of uncertainty provides the best guarantee of financial security. Current events in the Middle East and Europe are no exception. We can be confident of one thing, no matter how significant these events may seem at the moment and no matter how devastating to those directly impacted, in the fullness of time their impact on investment markets will appear just another small bump on the road.
