Welcome to our ‘Guide to Pound Cost Averaging.

So you have a lump sum to invest. What now? Do you invest it all at once or bit by bit? Will soaring inflation, rising interest rates and further supply chain disruption fuel market volatility this year and impact on your lump sum?

Fear and worry are understandable, but trying to second-guess the impact of events – or even attempting to make a bet on them – rarely pays off and understandably can deter some people from investing. Global stock markets, as we’ve seen in recent times, can be unpredictable and highly volatile. They move frequently – and sometimes sharply – in both directions. This is why it’s important to take a long term view (typically ten years or more) and remember your reasons for investing in the first place.

Investors need to be prepared to view the downturns simply as part of a long term investment strategy and stay focused on their investment goals.
