Investment Risk Warnings

The value of investments can fall as well as rise and any income from them is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

EQi does not provide investment advice. If you are in any doubt as to the risk or suitability of an investment or product you should seek advice from an independent financial adviser.

The extent and value of any ISA tax advantages or benefits will vary according to the individual's circumstances. The levels and bases of taxation may also change.

How does regular investing help to smooth out market fluctuations?

For example, let’s say you have £1,200 to invest. Below we compare buying £1,200 worth of ABC company shares in January against investing £100 per month over the whole year.

As you can see in this example, although there are share price fluctuations, investing regularly has helped to smooth them out because you buy more shares when the price is low and fewer when the price is high. Please note that this is only an example and the share price may not always work to your advantage.
