Welcome to the Investing Academy!
If we´d be asked to summarize our investing experience into two famous quotes, probably it would be these two:
“Don’t look for the needle in the haystack. Just buy the haystack!”
“It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.”
The former by John C. Bogle, founder of Vanguard, the latter attributed Danish physicist Niels Bohr, these nicely recap why we advocate for investing in broad instruments like ETF and avoid market timing or stock picking based on expectation, but rather stick to well researched market anomalies and price action.
Being an investor is no easy job, especially if you are a Do-It-Yourselfer, and even more if you´re still in your job. Being an investor with Logical Invest is – so we´ve been told many times – even harder.
Rules based, quantitative investing like we advocate for is full of math terms, dives deep into statistics and finance, requires hours of reading to truly understand what you will invest your money in – and on top our unique blend of “LI slang” and geeky, non-native English writing style. We hear you!
To empower novice investors to benefit from our strategies and portfolios but also as useful reference for the investing veterans, we´ve started to put some introduction articles about broad investing topics together, and will call this compilation in future our Investing Academy.
We´ll start with some 25 articles, but plan to further add topics of interest as we receive feedback and topics develop in our forum.
