Should you be scared of the stock market?

Over the last few months there have been many scare stories about the stock market, pension funds and ultimately investment returns. While there is bound to be a degree of concern from UK investors the truth is that the UK stock market is the centre of the UK economy and if the economy is to recover then the stock market will in due course follow. Indeed, there have already been signs over the last few months that stock markets are looking forward to more prosperous times.

While this should in no way be taken as investment advice, the UK stock market and other investment markets are central to the growth of the UK economy offering a way for public companies to access additional funding and increase their profile. Those who mock the stock market, and other investment markets in the UK, do not seem to appreciate the role the sector has in our everyday lives.

For those with money to invest for the longer term it may be worthwhile making an appointment with your financial advisor to discuss the potential for the future. We may look back at the current situation in two years, five years, or even 10 years and potentially kick ourselves for not picking up stocks and shares which in hindsight potentially looked good value.
