Does terrorism impact your thoughts on overseas property investments?



Unfortunately there are many areas of the world under threat from terrorists. I was wondering does terrorism impact your thoughts on overseas investment or do you simply discount them and get on with life? If we look back to the troubles in Northern Ireland there were many attacks on the UK mainland which rather bizarrely became a way of life and had little impact upon the property market.

What are your thoughts on this controversial subject?

There are certain countries where investors may think twice about investing at this particular moment in time but on the whole terrorist activity should not have any material impact upon your decision-making process. You may look for higher returns in more volatile countries but even this stance attracts very different opinions. If you let terrorist activity dictate your investment strategies where does it all end?
