Tax-efficient shelters

Cultivate the art of patience

Avoid knee-jerk reactions by focusing on long-term investment objectives

Creating and maintaining the right investment strategy plays a vital role in securing your financial future. But we live in the era of the 24-hour news cycle. Human tendency is to prioritise negative over positive news content, and no one is immune from bad news. So as an investor, when you do get it, how do you process the information, deal with it and move on unscathed?

Choppy waters, not full-on gale

Wait for the bad weather to pass and stay the course

Volatility fluctuates based on where we are in the economic cycle, but it is a normal feature of markets that investors should expect.

This can spark anxiety, fuel uncertainty and trigger radical decisions in even the most seasoned investors.
