When is a good time to invest?


When to invest

[Estimated time to read: 1 minute]

This is easy.

We have answered why, how and what.

This is the when.The answer is today.

Not tomorrow or next year.

Not on the next rise or fall.

But today.

It’s a bit like starting an exercise program.

You may want to postpone till after the weekend or New Year.

You may not really feel like it.

Or think that tomorrow could be better.

But I talked about this in the ‘why’ to invest?

It is all about putting away capital TODAY for your tomorrow.

It is about discipline.

It is about structure.

It is about low-cost, boring stuff.

It is about the long term.

It is about beginning your future - today.

For the doubters amongst you maybe the following presentation can help:

I hope you enjoy it and whatever and whenever you choose to do something – do it well.

This means:

  1. Knowing your objectives

  2. Getting the right platform

  3. Choosing the right funds – blue chip, low cost, value buys

  4. Beginning as soon as possible

  5. Switching off the white noise of the ‘financial industry’.

The truth is, investing isn’t difficult- but getting started, and keeping on track, takes a little bit of thought.  We'll help by providing you with all the information and access you want. We'll make it flexible, easy and cheap.  And we, like you, will take as much time as it takes to get it right.  We think a good starting point is Do-It-Yourself Investing: How to become your own financial adviser, an ebook we wrote to help lay out the choices we think you should consider.  Please download it today.
