We’re on the home straight on this New Accumulators season now, and we dealt last week with the massive subject of our behaviour around our money. Today I have something pretty special for you, or rather, someone pretty special…
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Except when you’re investing, when it tries to trick you. Constant Vigilance!
Of all the influencing factors that will determine the success or otherwise of your wealth-building, your own behaviour is the biggest deal of all. As New Accumulators, we have some lessons to learn…
We’re spending some time looking at some of the major biases that we bring to bear when we’re investing, and how they often hold us back from being really successful investors. Today, we’re talking about ANCHORING.

We've looked at what trusts are and a little bit about how they work, so let's cover some practicalities now, when it comes to YOUR financial planning
Invest in planning

Invest in planning


I know that you’re itching to get going with your investing and wealth-building, and I keep putting the brakes on. But it will serve you well to put a little bit of forethought into the whole exercise, and in my world, we call that financial planning…
Last week we talked about what a trust actually is, but this week we need to go deeper and look at the benefits, and the downsides and how they can be used in your financial planning.
