Top 3 Biggest Threats To Your Investments In 2020

With the recent economic collapse due to coronavirus, many investors are wondering what other threats lie out lurking in the darkness. A lot of you have lost money thanks to the stock market crash, but the good news is that this seems to be a temporary problem. Most people are encouraged to hold onto their investments and play the long game - wait until this blows over, then enjoy making returns once more. 

In reality, there are some bigger and more consistent threats to be worried about:


All trading and investments are done digitally. As such, this creates opportunities for cybercriminals to attack. All it takes is for one hacker to hack into your investment accounts, then sell your investments and pocket the money. Even if you use a trading company, they can still hack the system and damage your investments. Thankfully, there is cybercrime prevention software out there that can put a stop to this. However, the threat from cybercriminals and hackers is very much a real and consistent one. If your investments aren’t well protected, then you can lose all your money in a matter of seconds. 


Yes, whatever happens on the political scene will have a knock-on effect on your investments. We saw this in Europe during the whole Brexit fiasco, which resulted in massive drops in the UK market. The decisions that politicians make will ultimately decide if your investments go up or down. With an election on the horizon in the US - and political uncertainty pretty much everywhere in the world - there could well be another crisis market on our hands. Of course, it could go the other way and lead to more investment gains; nobody knows. That’s what makes politics such a big threat - there’s so much uncertainty!


Lastly, the biggest threat to your investments in 2020 (and beyond) is yourself. That’s right, you are more of a threat than anything else. It starts with a lack of knowledge about what to invest in. You make terrible decisions from the start, which means your money gets thrown down the drain. However, this is easily rectified by doing some research or getting professional help. The main issue is when you panic. This is particularly relevant during these coronavirus-riddled times. It’s so easy to log into your investment accounts and look at how much money you’ve lost over the last month or so. The gains are way down, and you get anxious. You don’t want this to continue, or you’ll lose all of your money. So, you panic and sell your investments. 

This goes against the age-old method of buy low, sell high! Don’t let yourself panic in a situation like this. If anything, don’t bother checking things until the markets start picking up. If you sell now, then you’re going to lose so much money later on. Hold onto your assets, play the long game, and you’ll reap the rewards in years to come. 

By understanding the main threats to your investments, you can stop them from being massive issues. Times are hard right now, but they’ll pick up again soon!
