The key to composure is faith - and to get faith you need to have conviction. Fund managers sell their convictions because they have faith in their research. Investors can gain composure by having faith in the skills of the fund manager. The skill of a fund manager can be judged by their experience, education, track record, team, and communication about market conditions. As an advisor, one should be helping clients regain conviction and remain composed to ensure their long-term wealth accumulation journey is not disrupted.

Investors now have access to a profusion of information and expertise that can assist instil confidence in investing, asset management, attaining goals, and living a financially secure life, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Food For Thought

While an independent advisor should keep you up-to-date on things pertaining to your financial situation, it is essential that you maintain your own financial literacy. If you are striving for financial independence, there are a couple of routine behaviours you can integrate into your financial life that can help you better manage your finances and respond to financial crises. Whether or not you have a natural affinity for or interest in finance, it makes sense as a taxpayer and investor to stay current on financial issues.
