Post Brexit advice

I would strongly advise investors to think twice about taking cash from their pension pots in the immediate aftermath of the UK’s decision to exit the European Union.
As a rule market turbulence is not helpful when looking to take income from investments and certainly market falls in the short term can have a big effect on overall asset levels when combined with making withdrawals.
With this in mind now is alsmost certainly not the right time to be doing this.
If income is needed in the short term I would advise drawing from cash emergency funds which can be topped up when the markets have settleed down.
The other option is to take smaller withdrawals over a longer time period rather than large withdrawal all at once.
