What is happening in the world and what consequences are there for the financial markets?
What does this mean for you in practice?
Our experts base their investment decisions on events in the economic
and financial world, as well as on their outlook for specific
regions, sectors and themes.
To ensure you remain firmly in your comfort zone should the
stock markets become volatile, you have the option of adding two
- When there is volatility on the financial markets, the fund
managers can switch part of the portfolio to less risky investments,
such as cash, and so limit the downside risk for you.
- When there are clear trends on the financial markets and
shares are outperforming the bonds or vice versa, the fund managers
can use part of the portfolio to increase holdings of the
best-performing asset class (shares or bonds) and sell the
worst-performing one (bonds or shares), and so achieve the best
possible return for you.
We are all different, not only as individuals, but also in the way
we look at our investments. Especially when it comes to periods of
volatility and loss. During such periods, it's not about 'The
situation on the stock market is making everyone feel
uncomfortable', but rather 'When is the situation on the stock
market going to make me feel overly uncomfortable?'.
At KBC Brussels, we take into account your individual wishes and needs.
We adjust the mix of shares, bonds and cash in such a way that
you can invest and stay invested without any worries, ensuring
you remain in your personal comfort zone at all times.
