Stick or twist? Your attitude to investment risk really matters

We’ve all seen those movies or read those books featuring powerful, strident individuals who have gone all gung-ho in the stock market and reaped seemingly unbelievable benefits in the process. And while the idea of doing something yourself might seem attractive, you have to be aware of the pitfalls should you get things wrong. Taking a gamble, especially a big gamble, is not usually for the timid.

It’s often the case that your attitude to risk, especially in regard to financial investments, is highly likely to reflect your attitude to life itself. And for that reason, reputable advisors such as the team at CNS Financial Solutions will always talk to you about risk-taking in order to ascertain how you want to proceed. And for us, we couldn’t go any further if we thought the client wasn’t fully on board with the strategy.

One of the most pleasing aspects of working in the financial sector is the knowledge that you will work with all types of people in any given month. Our team engage with clients of all ages and from all walks of life, and of course each of them has their own individual characteristics. Some have a strong appetite for risk in their investments, and some will be more reluctant to take unnecessary chances.

Think long and hard about your particular situation

There are a number of questions to consider before signing up to any investments, of course, including how much you wish to invest and what level of risk you want to attach to the process. It’s at times like this that our clients realise just how important it can be to not only look for top quality advice, but also to make sure they trust the professionals giving that advice.

When it comes to investing your money, there’s a fine balancing act involved in getting things right. Clearly, you want to look for a good return on your cash, but if the risks are too high you could find the whole process too stressful. If you’re a seasoned risk-taker, however, one that’s fully aware that the value of investments can go down as well as up, the thrill ride could be worth the time and trouble.

Of course, there could be other factors in play, in addition to your attitude to risk. You may only have limited time in which to invest, perhaps before you retire, for example. As always, our years of experience and our thorough knowledge of the investment process will help you reach a decision that reflects your available money, your time-span and your risk levels.

Knowing that your decisions are accompanied by advice and guidance from skilled professionals can bring you the peace of mind you need at this stage. Here at CNS Financial Solutions, we’ve helped many individuals to create an investment strategy that reflects their specific needs, and we’d be happy to do the same for you. To find out more, call 07414 750 874 today. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

The value of investments and the income they produce can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you invested.
