Mentoring Philosophy

When it comes to investing, the dominant thought is that we are all sensible, coolly rational people and so no-one ever loses control of their emotions. This is singularly the most damaging belief when it comes to investing. The reality is that when it comes to money none of us are always rational.

It simply does not add up, that we can have a range of emotions, love, anger, sadness etc regarding a whole range of issues, but when it comes to money and investment, we all singularly take a rational approach. This is simply not true. Many of us, including those in the finance industry believe that once we understand the “facts” of the stock market we will be able to buy stocks when they fall and sell when they rise. It sounds very simple, but putting it into action is somewhat more difficult.
