I have a substantial (to me) portfolio that is being managed by Santander - previously Inscape. In the past month, my porfolio has lost £80k (22%) in value and continues to suffer in the current global financial crisis. I don't know whether this is generally in line with other portfolio managers - or better/worse. How do I check Santander's perfomance against other similar managers ? Should I cash in some of this that is not Pep / ISA wrapper to minimise the impact and earn 7.2% fixed term interest for a year. Clearly longer term I will go back into equities - perhaps in a year or so.
I am not getting any response from Santander, and need some guidance from someone who understands the current turmoil.
Thank you in advance.
