Stocks down: NN Investment Partners advises caution

The bull market seems intact, and stock prices continue to go up after the turn of the year. But that should not deceive investors, warns Valentijn van Nieuwenhuijzen. Instead, the investment chief of the fund company NN IP recommends lowering the equity ratio.

NN Investment Partners warns investors against too much optimism. Instead, they should consider reducing their share of volatile investments, especially stocks.

The bull market is still running

The new year seems to be continuing the development of the past few years, says Valentijn van Nieuwenhuijzen, chief investment officer of Dutch fund provider NN IP. However, investors should not simply continue to do so in the future. Among other things, let the currently extremely strong optimism of many investors sit up and fear setbacks.

"That's what made us reduce our overweight in equities," says Nieuwenhuijzen. Warren Buffett quotes, "Be careful when the others are greedy!"
