 Customers view stock market volatility as an ideal time to invest in equities
 Alliance Trust Savings, a leading UK financial services provider, announced record equity dealing activity on Friday 5 August 2011. The record breaking day saw unprecedented dealing volumes, which were up 61% against the previous recorded high on 15 March 2011.
 Of all the trades placed on Friday 5 August, 71% were ‘buy' orders confirming that Alliance Trust Savings investors are viewing recent market volatility as an opportunity to buy and are keeping a positive outlook on equity investing.
