The Upside of Time in the Market

20 Apr 2020

The idea of being able to time the market is emotionally appealing. After every significant market dislocation, the popular business press will carry the story of the market wizard who got it just right. The catch is that from one correction to the next, it is rarely the same wizard. The reality is that most professional investors get it partly right and a few will get it horribly wrong.

This is the third note in a trilogy series outlining the principles behind Koda’s investment philosophy: diversification, upside/downside capture and time in the market. Parts one (‘The Upside of Maintaining Diversification‘) and two (‘The Upside of Minimising Downside‘) are also available on Koda’s Insights page.
