Have you ever considered if the attempt to select and buy individual stocks is a worthwhile exercise? Is it better to stick with a disciplined approach to investing and look to win in the longer term? This vlog explores some thoughts on the matter (and there's a very cold dip involved!).
In this great Expert Wealth TV series we'll explore the basics of investing in simple bitesize chunks. In this first video, we'll learn about asset classes.
In the first in our series of videos on the value of financial advice, we'll ask the key question - Do I need an adviser?
Welcome to our quarterly returns bulletin for the end of June. First of all, we feel we should apologise for being a little tardy with this one. Our excuse is that we have all been away on our holidays and when not doing that, busy serving our lovely clients! This month, we’re going to turn our attention to the benefits of doing nothing.
It is human nature to look at an investment that has done particularly well and wish you had been invested in it. We all risk being dragged into ‘if only’ mind games: ‘If only I had put a £10,000 into Amazon in 2003, I’d be retired by now’. ‘If only I had bought Bitcoin at £1…’. These thoughts are dangerous to investors, as this fear of missing out (FOMO) can tempt them into taking speculative risks, often based on a rear-view mirror perspective. Concentrated risks have concentrated outcomes, both good and bad.
