PLAY THE LONG GAME
Staying invested during the hard times is just part of the battle to keep volatility in check. Investing in different asset classes and different regions can help to spread risk across your portfolio, rather than focusing it all in one area. Also, different asset classes perform differently - at different times in the market cycle - so holding a diversified range of assets can help smooth losses if one asset class outperforms while another one is suffering.
When it comes to tackling volatility, it's important to take emotion out of the equation and to look beyond temporary market fluctuations to the longer-term financial objectives for your charity.
