2017 is shaping up to be a big political year and thoroughly reviewing your portfolio is a necessity to ensure your investments stay on track.
France, Germany and China have major elections, Brexit’s been delivered, Trump’s had his first 100 days and Erdogan’s got ‘his’ Turkey – such major political events are giving rise to a global feeling of unpredictability that may (or may not) affect the markets.
How to review your portfolio
To keep your portfolio on the right track, it’s important to review your investments regularly so that you can ensure you’re happy with your performance. Taking stock of your investments will help you identify any duds, highlight problem areas, identify changes you should be making to suit your lifestyle and keep your investments on the right track.
Take time to consider which parts of your portfolio have performed well. In reviewing your asset allocation, it will become clear which areas need to be addressed and rebalanced. If you fail to do this, you could be exposing yourself to greater financial risk.
