It is not intended as a recommendation or as financial advice. We are NOT authorised by the FSA (Financial Services Authority) to give advice. We are NOT regulated by the FSA either. Instead you should use this site and the information within it for research purposes only. The suitability of the investments discussed here will depend upon your personal circumstance. If you are unsure about its suitability for you personaly then seek the counsel of an experienced financial adviser. Considered financial advice is often greatly undervalued and is of great use in navigating the complex universe that is both investments and holistic financial planning. You should also remember that when reviewing investments past performance has been shown to be an often poor indicator of future performance, and particularly so in the short term. Before making an investment it is important to consider the risk to your capital should the investment go down in value. Substantial loses can be experienced, again this is especially so over the short term. It is also important to consider that the nature of the investments featured on WhichInvestmentTrust.com are long term in nature and should NEVER be considered over a short term horizon. Predicting the direction of investment markets on a short term basis has been shown to be incredibly difficult, and no one here at WhichInvestmentTrust.com professes to have any such experience or qualification.
