Revisiting the 10 Basic Truths about Investing

With the news talking about inflation records everyday and how the economic momentum is turning negative, it is easy to get distracted from your long-term goals. Here are the 10 Basic Truths about Investing:

  • Diversification is still your most important investment strategy.
  • It’s time in the market that matters, not timing the market.
  • Someone’s portfolio will always be doing better than yours (or at least they will say it is!).
  • Markets go through up and down cycles, but they have trended higher over the long term.
  • Markets are unpredictable, so focus on what you can control.
  • What matters isn’t what the market does, but what you do in response.
  • Volatility decreases the longer you’re invested.
  • The more frequently you check your portfolio, the more volatile it will feel.
  • Risk doesn’t look like risk when it’s earning a return – manage risk, don’t avoid it.
  • Headlines often focus on the sensational, short term and negative – none of which should matter to investors.

DLD Live Webinar with Galibier Capital Management

On May 26, 2022, we hosted a webinar with Andrew Wallman, CFA and Lauree Wheatly, CFA of Galibier Capital Management. Through Canada Life’s institutional investment mandate, many of you are invested in Galibier’s Canadian equity pool. In this webinar, they talked about “growth at a reasoned price”. With a 25-30 company mandate, they discussed their methodologies on how they select companies for their pool. Hint hint – for all the parents out there, Paw Patrol is in this portfolio through Spin Master Corp.
