You're enjoying some time outdoors and huge storm clouds start to appear, threatening to burst at any second.
Instinct would kick in, you'd pack up your things and run for shelter...
The thought of running into the storm wouldn't even cross your mind.
But what if I told you, it should?
Quit the stock market at the top and buy back in again at the bottom.
It sounds great doesn’t it?
But while the temptation to try to time the market is considerable...
The reality rarely lives up to the promise.

One afternoon, I received a message from an investor on LinkedIn.
He was concerned that his portfolio wasn't performing.
He didn't understand why, considering his investments were "capital guaranteed" and "inflation beating".

One that you, as an expat investor, might have been sold too?
Science has changed every aspect of our lives...
Including how we communicate, travel, shop and even invest.
And the technology keeps improving.
In the financial world, those who don't keep up, often fall behind.
And sell their clients short.
We all know there's a lot of uncertainty in the world.
Events like Brexit and the US-China trade war have affected economies and markets which, in turn, have created panicked investors.
Almost daily, we're asked the same questions.
In case, you have similar concerns of your own...
Here are the answers to help put your mind at ease.
The end of one of the UK's most well-known ‘star manager’ funds is nigh.
Back in June, Woodford’s Equity Income fund was closed to withdrawals.
The goal was to sell off the least liquid parts, and re-open at a later date.
But yesterday, the decision was made.
The fund will shut down, permanently.
The vast number of retail investors will not get any money back until mid-January.
(At the earliest.)
So, what happens now?
