Time in the market beats timing the market
“Time in the market beats timing the market” It’s one of the often-quoted reminders for investors trying to figure out the best way to deal with and profit from the markets.
If you start early on – whether investing in shares, property or other assets, most likely your investment would appreciate in 5-10 years rather than waiting for the ‘best’ time to enter the market.
In the current market environment where people are bombarded with news of rising interest rates and a barrage of doom and gloom forecasts, it is easy for many to feel disheartened. Some people may feel lost when the value of their investment go down (even temporarily).
In this video, Kej Kulane, senior investment specialist at Wealthi, shares his investment journey – the ups and downs and the challenges along the way. He talks about the strategy that’s guided him as he built his investment portfolio.
Kej started his property investment journey when he was in his early 20’s. As he focused on learning as much as he can about the property market – where and what to buy, market cycles, where are the opportunities – he’s now built a substantial portfolio of investment properties including apartments and townhouses.
In this interview, Domenic Nesci, co-founder at Wealthi, sums up the key learnings and insights every investor can use to deal with the different market cycles.
As an investor, one of the key take-aways from this video is the importance of planning. As Kej points out, one of the most important learnings and guidelines that served him well over the years is to have a long-term plan. Sticking to it and taking action.
“Investing is a long-term strategy and it is important to have a plan that aligns with your goals. And take action that will bring you closer to your goals,” Kej says.
