Fidelity International - Key volatility messages for investors

Financial markets can be subject to periods of event-related volatility during which investor confidence can be significantly undermined. Here, Fidelity International provide key messages to help investors steer their portfolios through volatile times.

10 things to remember when volatility strikes:


  • Volatility is a normal part of long-term investing
  • Long-term investors are usually rewarded for taking equity risk
  • Market corrections can create attractive opportunities
  • Avoid stopping and starting investments
  • The benefits of regular investing tend to stack up
  • Diversification of investments helps to smooth returns
  • A focus on income increases total returns
  • Investing in quality stocks delivers in the long run
  • Don’t be swayed by sweeping sentiment
  • Active investment can offer benefits in periods of increased volatility.


Important Information:

The value of investments (and the income from them) can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns. Investments into Fidelity’s funds should be made on the basis of the current prospectus (if available) and the key information document.
