Resisting the temptation to tinker – when to review your Nutmeg account
20 January 2016|3 min
At Nutmeg, we make investment decisions on your behalf. That’s what we call ‘discretionary’ investment management. At the same time, you have the freedom to withdraw your money whenever you want, at no cost. But knowing when to review your Nutmeg account is crucial. Making frequent withdrawals or other account changes for a short-term fix to your finances can seriously damage the long-term net returns you’ll get on your investments.

The global financial markets have seen a drop-off in recent weeks and the impacts have been felt across the vast majority of investment assets. While Nutmeg portfolios have fallen in value too, the performance is better than comparable benchmarks. Plus, economic growth forecasts for 2014 remain strong, so there’s no reason to suspect this is anything more than a blip and most likely a reaction to anticipated tapering in the US (a reduction of its bond buying programme that has been stimulating the economy since 2008).
