Knowledgeable investors will be capitalising on the volatility in global financial markets after the EU referendum whatever the outcome, according to a leading international financial consultancy.
Nigel Green, founder and chief executive at deVere Group, went on to say: "Naturally, global financial markets fluctuate in response to events, such as referendums, general elections, and other major geopolitical situations, both in the run-up and afterwards".
However, since the EU referendum is "so unpredictable" and with "its outcome having such a far-reaching and long-term impact", Green believes markets are likely to react more than they would in other circumstances.
"While some people are put off investing because of volatility, many of the most successful investors welcome it. This is because profitable opportunities are found where there are fluctuations," he said.
Green argued that fluctuations could cause panic selling - that is the wide-scale selling of an investment, which causes a sharp decline in prices. High-quality equities can then become cheaper, he added.
"This means investors can top up their portfolios or take advantage of lower entry points," he said.
"A recent instance of this scenario would be oil. Oil prices are now up around 70% since the beginning of the year."
However, Green said savvy investors still needed expert help and a diversified portfolio.
He added: "By their very nature, all markets are subject to volatility. A well-diversified portfolio and a good fund manager will help investors capitalise on the opportunities that volatility brings and sidestep potential risks as and when they are presented."
