How to make money in a dicey financial year for investors


Tribeca’s CEO Ryan Watson gives his thoughts in this feature article in the Herald Sun

On 6 July 2022 Ryan was reported saying he expects a portfolio of 50 per cent growth assets and 50 per cent defensive assets to deliver a return near 4 per cent in 2022-23.

“People should take the medium to long term view – the worst thing they can do is look at their investment portfolio weekly or even daily,”

We know there’s plenty of doom and gloom out there, with the media reporting daily on rising interest rates, dropping house prices and a sinking share market. But there is hope – and still opportunities for growth – if you stick to your investment strategy and take a long-term view.

In a good news story, our CEO Ryan Watson together with other finance experts were asked their opinion on how best to navigate the times ahead, to both protect and strengthen investments.

There’s plenty of helpful takeaways, with Ryan’s main message to stay the course. “Despite the current volatility in investment markets, ignore the noise and stick with the investment risk profile you have chosen”.

In the article Ryan also talks about adopting a “good sleep-at-night strategy” by investing in line with the market. “This is called index investing, and is designed to take the high highs and the low lows out of your investment performance.”

Other tips from the experts include the best regions to invest in property, how to manage your superannuation and the advantages of harnessing the power of compound interest.

It only takes a few minutes to read, but could be invaluable in easing your mind during unpredictable times.

And remember, you are always welcome to reach out to Ryan or any of our Tribe if you wish to discuss any aspect of your finances.
