Set-&-Forget Investing in ETFs & Options – for Lasting Growth & Income …

Insuring your Investments


Most people think the outcome from investing is only related to the ups and downs in the market.  

Of course there’s a relationship (just as well, because markets tend to rise 7-8 times out of 10) – but there are many ways to invest without worrying about market movements.

Everyone is different so we can easily customise our investments depending on our risk profile or age, income requirements, need for capital growth, or personal liquidity needs.   

As an example, in our Options classes, attendees learn how to earn monthly income and own insurance to protect any downside, if needed (see screenshot below).

Here are some other ways to invest according to your own risk profile or personal requirements: 

  • Achieve more stable returns through low-risk, set-and-forget balanced funds 
  • Owning Bonds can (usually) balance out stocks.  In a recession, bonds serve as a hedge vs stocks.  Again, you can do this with simple, set-and-forget ETFs and funds  
  • If you need income, you can create recurring streams of cashflow through OptionsDividends and REITs   
  • If you seek capital growth, you can own high growth stocks and ETFs in the Tech and Ai sectors, for example
  • If feeling cautious and fearing a decline, you can buy protective insurance hedges (as per the screenshot below from our options class)

Shown above is a Bull Put Spread which involves selling a put option for income earning around 1-3% per month plus buying another put option for insurance purposes.

Investing is rewarding but also flexible enough to achieve from it what you personally need.  

And it’s all a lot easier than you might imagine.  Nowadays, there are innovative ETFs and tools that allow what the pros already do – at a fraction of the cost and with super simplicity.
