A few key points to take in mid-week:
- Avoid emotional investing – selling aftermarket declines or attempting to time the market risks missing the best returns.
- Volatility is a normal part of achieving investment returns – drawdowns are common on the path to long-term growth
- Understand long term equity returns are quite stable at around 8-10% p.a.
- Use the only free lunch in investing – diversification – to smooth out the investment return ride
