Hot Investing Tips

investing tips Feb 27, 2021

Sometimes too much information can be overwhelming; many people decide it’s too hard or they’ll start later. The best way to improve your long term chances of success in investing is to start now – small actions now have a huge impact over time. Start a savings account with a regular direct debit, buy an ETF every month, or increase repayments on your debt – choose one or more simple actions and start today. Even better if you can automate them; discipline is overrated.

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” – Humans are rather strange, we research buying a fridge, a car and even our makeup, but when someone gives us a hot share tip, we pile all of our savings into one idea.

investing volatility Feb 27, 2021

The last year has seen HUGE volatility in the financial markets and things may stay this way for a little longer.

So how do you prepare your investments and pensions so that you can have a good night’s sleep?

Life as we know it for the modern lady is busy! Our days are packed with work, kids, travel, family commitments, house work, study, side-hustles, socialising, exercise… and usually minimal down-time…
The daily to-do’s are constant and can easily distract us from focusing on some of our ‘bigger picture’ goals, like (drum roll) starting to invest. Before we know it, days, weeks and months can fly-by and we’re still yet to take 5, and commit time to our goals.

Here’s to technology!

Not only has it increased accessibility to information, education and a range of products and services, it’s made aspects of our lives easier and in many ways, helps buy us time, our most valuable resource.
