What Should You Do Following The Brexit Vote?

Brexit Vote

Given the recent high profile resignations of the "Old Spice Girls" (Cameron - Posh Spice; Farage - Scary Spice; Johnson - Baby Spice; Hodgson - Sporty Spice; Evans - Ginger Spice), the answer to the above question could well be found in the first line of Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If”, which begins:

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs...

Stockmarket investments are by their very nature long term.  Volatility is part and parcel of the deal and occasionally, large falls can result.  Investment in property is also a long term play.  It’s the very reason these asset classes are found in long term financial contracts like SIPPs. 

So here’s the suggestion.

If your investment horizon was set for the long term, there’s no sense in taking a knee-jerk reaction right now.  After all, selling any asset when markets are down could simply crystallise a loss.  But if you sit tight, the loss is only ‘on paper’, and time could well solve the problem automatically.

In short, if your SIPP money is invested for the long term, perhaps the best thing to do right now is Keep Calm And SIPP Tight!

AJ Bell Is Often The Best Value SIPP For Stockmarket Assets

That's our opinion.  Not just because AJ Bell was the first company to offer an online SIPP.  Nor that it's received many prestigious awards.  And not even because the wife of SIPPclub's Founder has an AJ Bell SIPP.  It's because it's one of the most competitive stockmarket SIPPs on the market. 

Over time, charges can wipe out a huge part of your fund.  We like AJ Bell because there are no set-up costs.  If you hold passive funds, which is our preference, or shares, investment trusts, EFTs, gilts or bonds, you pay one small fixed fee no matter how large your fund.  And when you come to draw your benefits either as occasional drawdown or UFPLS payments, there's a small charge for the whole year no matter how many times you access your money (many SIPP and SSAS providers charge more than this for each payment).  However, you should always compare charges in detail, because AJ Bell could be more expensive than other providers, depending on the type of stockmarket assets you hold.
