Nutmeg’s director of investment strategy Brad Holland answers the question ‘what is volatility?’ and explains how – when it comes to investments – volatility is your friend.

“People tend to have mixed reactions about volatility. But the truth of the matter is that investment portfolios, unlike savings accounts, are designed to experience volatility”


Risk warning

As with all investing, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio with Nutmeg can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. Past or future performance indicators are not a reliable indicator of future performance.
