Hear from Royal London’s investment experts, Trevor Greetham and Ryan Medlock, on what’s been happening in markets and the impact that this has had on pension investments.
Over the past couple of years, financial markets have been volatile on the back of global events such as the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, plus rising inflation and interest rates. You may have been concerned to see some short-term falls in the value of your pension as a result of this.
It’s very normal for the value of investments to go down as well as up and you should remember that you could get back less than you paid in. But, although not guaranteed, we expect that pension values will generally go up over the long term despite short-term volatility.
