Hi, I’m Hannah from DIY Investor.

Watching your portfolio fall in value can be tough to take, but it’s also a natural part of the market cycle.

Don’t worry, help is on hand from investing legends who’ve seen it all before – and come out the other side.

Here are a few of our favourite quotes that remind us that we will get through the downturn.

First up, US investor Shelby M.C. Davis, said ‘Don’t panic’.

‘Invest for the long haul. Don’t get too greedy and don’t get too scared’ he said.

‘Crises are normal’, says Berkshire Hathaway legend Charlie Munger.

‘If you’re going to invest in stocks for the long term, there are going to be periods when there’s a lot of agony, and other periods when there’s a boom. You just have to learn to live through them.’
Fund manager and fillanthropist Peter Lynch says ‘Downturns are moments of opportunity’.

‘I’ve found that when the market’s going down and you buy funds wisely, at some point in the future you will be happy.’

Economist and educator Peter Bernstein believed ‘Your pain is understandable.’

‘No matter how carm you are, no matter how long-term an investor you are, no matter what your horizons, when the market is jumping around, you feel uncertainty in your gut and it’s hard to resist that.’

So, keep carm and carry on to financial freedom.
