Life is pretty hectic, folks.
The nine-to-five grind can be relentless, leaving almost no time to kick back on your couch, watch a spot of telly and neck a drink or three.
That also includes finding the time to check on the performance of your investment portfolio. It can be a tight squeeze when you have other things to tick off your to-do list.
Phew. Just the thought alone can be anxiety-inducing.
Regardless of whether you’ve already taken charge of your financial future, or you’re just starting out in the investment portfolio game, a little know-how goes a long way.
We’ve already seen just how easy it is to start investing in shares, even though most of us think it’s some elaborate process, but what about tracking how they’re doing and adjusting your portfolio accordingly?
Buy this, dump that, hang onto an underperforming share in the hope that it bounces back – again, time for a lie down.
We’ll throw you a little nug of helpful information, peeps, and one that makes everything rather streamlined and stress-free.
If you’re finding it hard to manage your portfolio, and can’t rustle up the time to follow the markets, you should consider looking into managed investment bundles, which let you invest in stress-free style.
But what are ‘managed investment bundles’?
Online investment company EasyEquities breaks it down nicely in this neat analogy: it’s like sitting in the cockpit of a plane with a pilot, who can get you up in the air and plot the flight-path you need to help you reach your desired destination. No fuss, no worries.
Who looks after your money?
With managed investment bundles, your co-pilot is an asset manager who picks the mix of shares and exchange traded funds (ETFs) in the amounts that they see fit based on their investing philosophy, and adjust them when they think it’s necessary.
Do you get to choose who looks after your money?
Your portfolio is important is to you, and the person who manages it for you has to have the smarts to do the job right. There might be a specific asset manager whose philosophy and style really gels with you, and that’s the kind of person you would want to manage the ins and outs of your portfolio.
However, sometimes hiring an expert can end up being costly, eroding at your returns and leaving your pockets lighter before you’ve even begun.
By using a platform like EasyEquities to invest, you can access an asset manager’s skill and experience in the markets with whatever amount you have available.
Keen to buy R50 worth of shares in the biggest local or international companies? Click, click, boom. You’re a shareholder now, which I’ll be putting on my CV when I can muster the energy.
Annualised fees at EasyEquities range between 0,5% and 2%, so you don’t have to worry about laying out a huge chunk of money to start.
Should you let someone else manage your investments?
It’s a huge weight lifted off your shoulders to let someone else take control of managing your portfolios.
By owning a management investment bundle, you’ll have complete sight of what’s happening in your account whenever you want to.
That means you can invest your money while you kick back, relax and enjoy life without fuss or fear.
Your co-pilot’s got you covered, fam.
