Demystifying Uncertainty

If you knew with absolute certainty what the future held, investing would be a walk in the park – very often it's uncertainty, the not knowing, that causes fear, second-guessing and poor decision-making. Yet for all the anxiety it can cause, market or policy uncertainty can also be a boon for investors, helping to spur economic growth, protect against overconfidence and reveal new opportunities.
