After my blog piece on Research in Motion’s fortunes it appears Apple has endured a fall from grace in the past few months. It is very rare that an OEIC or Unit Trust would suffer such a decline in price as they are usually invested in different equities and different asset classes. I have written about this before but it is critically important that an investor knows the risks they are taking and understand their capacity for loss and the time frame for the investment. Taking advice from a firm of independent financial advisors or Chartered Financial Planners can help their client make these assessments and research which investments are suitable in their opinion and may not be known to the client.
