- In this week's report - why I don't get excited by what central banks say
- Analysis round-up of five UK-listed shares
It may sound simple and in some cases complacent, but we should only worry about things we can control and none of us can control what goes on in the markets or the rate of inflation. We can only decide how much exposure we need or want to have and the risk we can cope with. Once this has been decided, a watchful eye on our investments is needed, but anything more than this can often do more harm than good.
I have chosen to invest my money largely in the shares of what I see as good and resilient companies that I hope can grow in value more than inflation over the rest of my days. I’m not going to worry too much about them as I feel it’s the only decent choice I have and frankly there are more important things in life.
