What is happening in the world and what consequences are there for the financial markets?
Our experts base their investment decisions on events in the economic and financial world, as well as on their outlook for specific regions, sectors and themes.
To ensure you remain firmly in your comfort zone should the stock markets become volatile, you have the option of adding two dimensions:
- When there is volatility on the financial markets, the fund managers can switch part of the portfolio to less risky investments, such as cash, and so limit the downside risk for you.
- When there are clear trends on the financial markets and shares are outperforming the bonds or vice versa, the fund managers can use part of the portfolio to increase holdings of the best-performing asset class (shares or bonds) and sell the worst-performing one (bonds or shares), and so achieve the best possible return for you.
We are all different, not only as individuals, but also in the way we look at our investments. Especially when it comes to periods of volatility and loss. During such periods, it's not about 'The situation on the stock market is making everyone feel uncomfortable', but rather 'When is the situation on the stock market going to make me feel overly uncomfortable?'.
At KBC, we take into account your individual wishes and needs. We adjust the mix of shares, bonds and cash in such a way that you can invest and stay invested without any worries, ensuring you remain in your personal comfort zone at all times.
