A recent study by property investment platform British Pearl which analysed typical five-year investments made over the past half-century has found investors would have made money during the vast majority of investment periods.
The study has also revealed that those who have invested in residential property were in profit 83% of the time, on average, over the past 50 years.
James Newbery, investment manager at British Pearl, commented: “This research shows investors who play their cards right and hold their nerve in the midst of economic or political upheaval are still likely to come out on top.
History shows us that investors who are prepared to weather storms rather than run for cover are still able to make strong returns at times from investments that present a very limited risk of loss."
