2 years way from retirement. I have lost about 7k from a smallish pension pot because it was invested in funds that, I thought, were safe, Govt bonds.

I was spending about 1200 a year on fuel, now 1800, so any fuel subsidy I get from Govt action has been obliterated by my 7k loss. The pot would have paid off my mortgage. I suppose I could always remortgage.

Cheers tories

Most likely me, and other young professionals with time to ride this out and are actually going to benefit from the market uncertainty.

im increasing my contributions to my investment portfolio, the market will recover and when it does those who could invest more now will be the ones who ‘win’ in the end
