– Should we invest more when the market goes down? Galileo Capital’s Warren Ingram shares valuable advice


The year 2022 has seen wild volatility in the markets, leaving many investors unsure of what exactly to do.

Is it a good idea to continue your current contributions or even increase them in these uncertain times?

Personal Financial Advisor Warren Ingram (Executive Director at Galileo Capital) takes a broad view and shares his insights on The Money Show.

When making investment decisions and the markets are down, whether in your home market like ours in South Africa or as a global investor, assuming things will only go one way …is often the worst assumption you can make.

Keep in mind, whether in good times or bad, “this too shall pass,” Warren reminds us.

One thing we do know is that we can’t predict with certainty, we can’t time the markets…and anyone who tells you they can is either fooling you or themselves. or they lie.

He points out that a market decline presents various opportunities for investors.

Three pointers for a decline market:

– A market decline may present an opportunity to buy stocks of good companies, which are temporarily trading at a discount. (Once the market begins to rally, you’ll share the recovery and subsequent returns.)

  • A market decline coupled with high inflation provides an opportunity, especially if you’re sitting on cash. (Cash is sure to lose purchasing power in the current environment.)

– A market decline may also present an opportunity to sell mismatched investments in your overall strategy (Reinvest according to your financial plan, without huge tax consequences.)

Conclusion: Whether you simply continue with your current contributions or increase them, it is always important to invest in good quality companies or stocks, with good diversification.
