Common mistakes investors make [infographic]
Are you making these common investment mistakes?
Recently, Andrew Hallam, author of The Millionaire Teacher and The Global Expatriate's Guide to Investing, visited our Dubai office to talk about the irrational behaviour of the average investor.
This confirmed what we've been telling our readers since we began our blog!
In one of our very first posts, we created a graphic that visually depicted the main reasons why investors fail.
And it's all about letting emotions get involved!
This is so important to understand, that we think it's worth sharing again.
How do you avoid making the common investment mistakes that other investors make?
Know the way you naturally think....and then do the opposite...and if you can't, hire a chartered financial planner to manage your emotions and your investments!
Along with hidden high fees, behaviour is the main reason why investor's don't make the returns they should.
As international chartered financial planners and wealth managers, it's vital that we communicate this message effectively.
