Our friends at Sharesies recently posted a Q&A with fund managers, talking about the current volatility. Paul Brownsey, our Chief Investment Officer, gave his thoughts on how to navigate this period of market uncertainty.
As a fund manager, how do you respond to market dips?
We’re an active manager, so we’re always re-assessing our reasons for having invested in particular companies or markets. We ask ourselves the following questions:
• Has something fundamental changed?
• Is there some information available that we haven’t assessed correctly?
• Do we need to exit a company or reduce risk?
It’s also very important not to react emotionally to market turmoil and change the way we make decisions. We have a very strong and organised process which has worked well in good times and bad times. Working as a team to stick to that process is vital.
