Agreed, no way am I cystalising those losses. Thankfully I have other DB pensions etc and from June the state pension & bus pass.

Gary Lineker went throughout his entire career without receiving a single booking.

So did my Father. Lovely bloke but a hopeless DJ.

By unhappy coincidence my fund has plummeted in value too very recently, I'm told by an insider to check how much is tied up in Gov bonds as that is the problem (& he doubts they will ever recover significant value back)

My fund is down 10.7% year on year. Fortunately only 3.7% is in bonds, 76.5% is in equities round the world. It did this in 2008....we just have to take a longer term view and don't panic......if I live that long....... hide

We all are suffering from 1st world problems plus a sick media and time on our hands to get steamed up about the media and their less than neutral (perhaps) reporting.

whilst history can only give us previous trends , one has to bear in mind that the FTSE 100 took 15 years or so to get back to 7100 after the 2001 tech crash with another low in 2008 when markets fell yet again. In 2008 my pension pot lost nearly 50% of its value with the crash, only to recover to its previous level just before my retirement……..I lost effectively any growth since 2001. The big issues are Chinas debt mountain, Russian aggression and the energy crisis………..and the extent of the pending recession. whether Gilts come back into favour will depend on hoe high interest rates go and for how long. There are no guarantees in life, we are certainly in for a rough ride with pensions having to pay out more with inflation increases……..the pots will soon shrink if not topped up with high investment returns. Good job the Govt is not taxing windfall profits!
