Irish Independent: Your Questions: I’m worried stock market turmoil has hit my pension, should I be taking action?


CEO of the Irish Association of Pension Funds, Jerry Moriarty says that most funds have some exposure to stocks, bonds and other investment assets, and are spread across a range of assets. So if you hear that one of these has been hit – say the stock market has fallen 20% – that doesn’t mean your pension has fallen by the same amount as only a proportion of your money may be in stocks.
