Insight Into Operating A Successful Services Firm

by Cameron Batt, founder of Crum Consult Despite what some interviews and inspirational quotes may suggest, creating a multi-national firm is more than just luck. In fact, if you have the right team of people on your side and can communicate effectively, you won’t need much luck at all. Of course there are more factors than just being able to articulate yourself and having a good support system, but at the foundation of any successful businessperson, that’s most of what lies there. In this arti...

How diversification is working during the coronavirus crisis

O ne of the ‘joys’ of a market crash is that it enables us to test all those asset allocation theories in real-time. Yay! A reminder: What we look to do when we construct our passive portfolios is to combine complementary asset classes. This way, when one asset is plunging, other assets will hopefully break our fall. Diversification stops us placing all our bets on the wrong horse. What often happens though is that people are not as diversified as they think, or they sack off investing in the m...

What has changed and what has not

T here’s nothing like a bear market to bring out the doomsters and hindsight heroes. Throw in a global pandemic, and it seems half the population is walking around with a sandwich board proclaiming the end of the world is nigh. Actually, that does a disservice to the bloke on the High Street reading Revelations aloud. At least your standard apocalyptic visionary stays in their lane. Many who claim stocks are toxic or that FIRE is finished were bull market cheerleaders a few short months ago. S...

A Short Guide To Investment Portfolios

For many people, an investment will mean buying shares in the stock market. However, investments cover everything from shares, bonds, gilts and property through to vintage cars, wine and art. There are of course risks associated with investing in anything, but some investments are seen as a lot riskier than others. An investment portfolio will help your money work harder for you and is often designed to spread this risk (although it should be noted, it is not without risk).  In this guide we...

Lump sum investing versus drip-feeding

W e’re often asked: Is it better to invest a big lump sum of money all at once, or to drip-feed your cash into the market? And there happens to be an easy answer… Statistically you’re more likely to boost your returns by going all in at once. A Vanguard paper titled Dollar-cost Averaging Just Means Taking Risk Later found that lump sum investing beat drip-feeding around two-thirds of the time in the UK and US. This was true across multiple decades and asset allocations – because more often than...

Understanding bond index funds

I mmerse yourself in the Monevator archives (hey, it’s what Saturday nights were made for), and you’ll notice we talk a lot about investing in shares. Much less so about bonds. Bonds – aka fixed income – are the unglamorous siblings to equities . Yet whilst shares hog the limelight like a first child, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone – outside of the gold, guns and baked beans brigade – who say bonds have no part to play in a diversified investment portfolio. Clearly bonds deserve more lov...
