The Spectrem Affluent Investor Confidence Index remained at a reading of 2 for June, unchanged from the 12-month high that was reached in April.

Affluent investors surveyed in June said they are less concerned about the partisan political climate, and instead consider the economy and stock market conditions to be the most serious obstacles to achieving their household’s financial goals at this time.

“While affluent investors indicated they would be investing more in stocks and stock mutual funds, investment in cash posted the biggest month-to-month increase in our survey, a reflection of continued uncertainty over recent market volatility,” said George H. Walper, Jr., president of Spectrem Group.

This monthly survey, of households with more than $500,000 of investible assets, was taken before the market sell-off in the wake of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggesting the Fed may taper its bond-buying program if the economy and job market show signs of improvement.
