For the next two weeks we’re going to be featuring an online documentary series called How to Win the Loser’s Game. win at investing.
Commissioned by Barnett Ravenscoft Wealth Management and hosted on Sensible Investing TV, the series explains how the investing industry is constantly trying to tempt investors into playing a game they cannot win. In short, it wants you to speculate rather than invest.
The majority of investors go along with it and, usually without realising, they’re handing over a huge portion of their potential investment returns to third party intermediaries who do little, if anything, to deserve it.
But the good news is that there is an evidence-based alternative. By refusing to speculate, by investing instead in a broadly diversified portfolio of low-cost index funds, and simply staying the course, a typical investor can ensure that he or she will end up, after costs, as one of the winners.
The documentary is in ten parts, and Part 1 of the series sets the scene. Enjoy it — and if you find it helpful, please share it.
Together we can change investing for the better.
