Hi, it’s Community Host Brogan Savage here 👋 On March 2nd, 2021, I was joined by Jeremy Thomson-Cook, head of foreign exchange strategy at Equals Money.

If you're finding the financial news a bit alarming of late – reflation, negative interest rates, recession – this discussion with Jeremy will calm your nerves. He layed out what he thinks is on the horizon and how to prepare your portfolio.

Here are the conversation highlights:

  • Take the time to do your research. If something’s a good price today, it’s likely to be tomorrow too. So take another 24 hours to do some extra reading and due diligence before you buy.
  • Psychology is important. You have to feel excited about a company and their potential if you want to invest in them. However, be aware if you're being drawn into an investment from "fear of missing out".
  • Companies that enable remote interactions, such as Disney or Peloton, will have staying power in and out of lockdown.

Twitter is a great way to sense-check what you've been researching. It also lets you have direct conversations with investment professionals.

"Never own anything you can't explain to your Mum. If you can't explain why you're buying a stock to your Mum, don't buy it!"
