UK makes up the core of investors portfolio Europe add risk income

Edward Caston invests for income, having long seen the benefit of shares and funds that focus on dividend pay-outs. This has enabled his investments to grow, even through periods when the stock market has been more volatile.

“I am not saying I haven’t lost money, particularly over shorter-term periods,” he says. “Sometimes it can be a little scary looking at the annual statements. But I try to buy and hold for the longer term. I’ve panicked in the past and sold holdings too soon. But I’ve learned that good investments tend to outperform in the long run, you just have to stick with them.”
