Investors Warned: Limit Investment In Property

Recommended Posts

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/08022006/325/prop...e-advisers.html

LONDON (Reuters) - Anyone looking to overload this year's ISA investment with property funds should
think again
, investment analysts have warned.
With yields falling
and equity markets remaining buoyant, investors are being advised to
keep only trace elements of property in their ISA
portfolio.
The recommendation comes despite the fact that property funds qualify

Seems that the recent FT artcile warning people to "stay clear" of property (houses and commercial) is being expanded.

Has no-one heard of the phrase 'in it for the long term.' :lol:

Few Warren Buffets around I am afraid. The financial markets know that most investors are speculators and those who have invested in the housing market recently are heavily leveraged with negative returns on many BTLs. The "long term" may prove fatal if the country goes into recession with unemployment and declining wealth causing a collapse of the property market for many years.

I like this dietary analogy (trace elements).

"Exceeding the recommended amount may have a severe laxative effect on the value of your investment portfolio".

Last I heard, Warren was in cash.......
