Following the Horses and Investing

Following the Horses and Investing

There are a lot of similarities between profitably following the horses and profitably following investments. Both require a great deal of research and also a good understanding of what is required to be a winner.

For investment house substitute stable, for jockey substitute fund manager and for the market conditions, substitute course and going.

Both can be fun!

We recently took some clients to the races and a great time was had by us all.

Traffic conditions prevented my timely arrival so I did not have enough time to brief clients properly on the finer points of betting on the horses and as the day drew on some time and money had passed before clients realised that I was betting on horses at a different course!

A pension is a long-term investment that typically cannot be accessed until age 55 (57 from April 2028). The level of pension benefits offered could change depending on the value of your investments (and any income they may generate).

The interest rates in effect at the time you begin receiving benefits may also have an impact on your pension income. The tax consequences of pension withdrawals will depend on your unique situation. In later Finance Acts, tax rates, tax bases, and tax relief may change.

You are aware that past performance will not necessarily be repeated in the future, but you should be aware that persistent poor performance invariably will.

The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up.

The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.
