Virtual Meeting

Investing headlines in 2020 and 2021 have been dominated by Gamestop/AMC and Bitcoin/Cryptocurrency.  Strategies such as these have the potential to generate substantial returns, but also significant losses.  Investors often become overly exuberant when prices go up, and often become overly distraught when prices go down.  This causes them to make irrational decisions, typically leading to unfavorable results.

Is there a way to access the significant upside potential of these strategies, but also help protect yourself from making irrational decisions?

John Sanchez, Investment Advisor, will discuss two “based on a true story” case studies where individuals made an investment in one of these strategies but ended up with very different results:

  • The investor, with a plan of action, was able to navigate through the volatility and end up with a very favourable result.
  • The gambler, with no plan of action, was not very happy with his overall experience!

John’s presentation will give you some practical and actionable strategies that you can use when making any investment decision.  With the right plan of action in mind, you will be better able to resist the urge to make irrational decisions, helping to improve your long-term financial success.
