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

Investing vs Trading


One word explains the difference:  RETURNS


With trading, your success rate is 50% at best.  Basically, a coin toss.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. 

Don’t just take my word for it.  In the UK, by law, every trading platform has to display a “wealth warning” on top of its homepage.  Take a look at an example below …


With investing your success rate is 100%.  That’s right, investing in stocks has NEVER resulted in a permanent loss – see chart below.   Diversified equities – low-cost ETFs or Funds – ALWAYS fully recover and make new highs – as UK stocks are doing right now.  

On top of all that, you receive dividend income.  All income and gains are tax-free when investing via ISAs and Pensions … no need to file those dreaded tax returns!  All totally passive and hassle-free.

So, ensure to INVEST rather than TRADE

The REAL reason is LONG TERM returns. Global equities have returned 8.1% per annum, on average, over the long term. 

Don’t try to time the markets. Be diversified.  PCA-in. Have a low-cost set-up … Let compounding do the rest.

Always Remember:

  • Time in the Markets always beats timing the markets
  • Stay Diversified 
  • Minimise those leakages:  Fees, Inflation, and Taxes
  • Financial Markets are a great source of recurring income  
  • ETFs, Balanced Funds and Options achieve all the above
  • Being educated helps you outperform 99% of the population


… to ensure your investments work for YOUR financial freedom (not someone else’s)     


And …
