  7. Do Higher Returns Mean...

Today I want to talk about risk and reward. 

There is an army of wealth professionals out there who are taught that risk and reward go together like a married couple.

If I had a dollar for every person who told me that higher returns automatically imply higher risk, I’d be rich from that alone. 

So in today’s episode, I want to unpack this myth and discuss how to navigate that flawed thinking if you are an investor who is looking for an edge and who is actually interested in earning better than poultry returns.

We cover:

  • how investing has become commodity, 
  • why you should only invest in what you understand,
  • not confusing unfamiliarity with risk,
  • understanding market fundamentals,
  • the value of having downside protection, and
  • how people fear what they don’t understand.
