Money Confidence

Aug 24 2022 • 12 mins

On this episode of the Money Confidence podcast, Sarah shares her top tips for managing your investments during turbulent times.


Resist the urge to keep checking your investment portfolio every 10 minutes. You will see your investments rise and fall. If you're not used to seeing your investments fall then you may panic.

Checking your investments all the time reinforces your worries. Just check it every month or every few months instead.

Stick to your long term strategy and basic investment principles.

Don't make decisions based on your emotions of stress, fear and anxiety. Take a step back and base those decisions on an informed consideration of the bigger picture. Keep in mind your long term vision.

Don't just focus on the negative headlines. Look at new information that comes to light that's not so negative and try and get a balanced picture.


'Everything's on an app these days.'

'We're emotional beings by nature.'

'The way our emotions change during the highs and the low of investing is why lots of us decide to invest when the markets are doing well and sell when the markets are falling which goes against basic good investment practices.'

'We would advise against timing the market .'

'It's time in the market not timing the market.'

'Resist making emotional decisions in the heat of the moment.'

'Don't just concentrate on the negative headlines.'

'You can go down a rabbit hole.'

'Look at the positive side."

'Try to get a balanced picture.'

'Try not to panic.'

'Guess where I was this morning?'

'Shout out to all those dentists who are actually taking children.'
