Everybody wants to protect themselves and their loved ones from the unexpected. But many postpone or avoid dealing with insurance because injury, illness, accidents, disasters, and death are topics we’d prefer not to think about. Getting the right type of insurance – health/medical, accident, home, disability and life – are critical considerations in any comprehensive financial plan; that’s why we are here to help you navigate the complexities.

Time in market vs timing the market
Building wealth is about buying quality assets – equities, bonds, or unit trusts – and allowing time to help you build value. On this journey, learn how to identify what is a good quality asset and the benefits of having a diversified portfolio. Investors learning how to invest might also ask when to invest. Naturally, it is obvious to jump in at the lows and cash out at the highs, but no one can predict the peaks and valleys of market returns. Instead of timing the market, riding it out over a longer period might reap better benefits.
