Moving from a Bull to a Bear Market
The Maysure logo has a bull and a bear in it. This is no mistake.
The two animals which make up our icon illustrate how we partner with our clients during the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to investing their money. Developing wealth over the long-term can feel overwhelming at times, especially in times of crisis, so its important to have a planning partner who understands your personal needs.
Long-term investing can be dauting and looking at a market such as the one we currently find ourselves in, every instinct can be to get up and run. To pull out all your investments because watching them dip dramatically is too much to handle.
When it comes to your current long-term portfolio, its important not to make any rash decisions without speaking to your advisor. A market like this might seem dangerous and terrifying, especially when it comes to your long-term investments, but all throughout history these are the markets where waiting it out for investors has worked out.
We currently find ourselves in what we would call a bear market, and having just been in a bull market, things can feel upside down.
A bull market is on the rise in a stable economy, and it feels safe. A bear market is unstable with stocks declining in value as the economy is receding.
One of the most iconic investors of our time, Warren Buffet made most of his money in a bear market. He is famously quoted on saying
“The investor of today does not profit from yesterday’s growth.”
“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”
What goes down must come up, and when it’s down the price and value you pay for certain stocks and investments means that ultimately, when they go up again you will have more value in your stocks than you would have had if you purchased them during a bull market phase.
We believe now is the best time to consider investing in the Sygnia Life Berkshire Hathaway Fund.
This innovative and low-cost fund gives South Africans access to the global investment powerhouse Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Run by two iconic executives: Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett and Vice-Chairman Charles T. Munger.
More on the fund
Berkshire “A” shares are valued at over four million rand per share, this means that the stock has a high average annual growth rate. It was previously closed to a small group of investors, but you now have the opportunity to invest in this fund through the Sygnia Life Berkshire Hathaway Fund.
Investing in a fund developed by someone who made his fortune off of markets like the one we are in, betting on that fund at a time like this could pay off.
Being in a bear market is ideal for someone who wants to invest and is prepared to ride the wave.
