Welcome to Finance and Fury, today’s episode is a flow on from last Monday’s Investment philosophy episode and narrow down into an Investment Strategy.

To invest properly, your investment beliefs need to expand into a strategy, an implementation plan.

So Today:

  • Expand on building an investment strategy from the investment philosophy – check out the worksheet
  • Look at goals and timeframes
  • The types of investments you will use
  • How much additional risk you can take on

Next Week:

  • Investment plans and specifics of putting the strategy in place
  • Implementation of said plan
  • The workbook will be available
  • What to actually do? And what habits you will make a part of your life?

Workbook for this:

  • Spent time putting together a work book for listeners
  • Questions to hep run through this exercise
  • Includes a checklist

Investment strategy:

  • Summary of what you will do
  • Behaviours that are necessary
  • Based off of the investment philosophy
  • Making it into an actionable plan

How to come up with it?

  • Be honest and ask yourself, how you will achieve your goals?
  • Has to be in line with the investment philosophy
  • The strategy helps you keep to your philosophy
  • How do you view your investments? What do they mean to you?
  • The strategy is how you articulate your strategy throughout your life

Categories of investment strategy questions:

  1. Goals and timelines
  2. How much risk can you withstand?
  3. Strategy to use

Outline:

  • Goals and timelines. We have talked about financial goals before.
  • Your attitude towards risk – are you a lover or hater?
  • Identifying a risky strategy when you see one – crystalising losses or not, will you be better off?
  • Avoid emotions and hard sells with the fear of missing out
  • Behaviours and emotions – knowing how you will react ahead of time helps avoid the worst case scenario
  • Mental exercises – not as good as the real thing but they help
  • Strategy specific – how will you look at achieving the goal?
  • Look at the types of investments that will help you achieve your goal

An example of mine: listen to find out details

  • Investment philosophy is 2 simple statements
  • Investment strategy is 3 statements – how I implement my philosophy

Next episode:

  • Work through some options to build wealth
  • The basic building blocks to pursue financial independence
  • Investment plans and specifics of putting the strategy in place
  • Implementation of said plan
  • What to actually do? and what habits you will make a part of your life?
