The true rea­sons in­vestors lose money

Finweek English Edition - - MONEY -

Over the years, I have come across many wary i nvestors who have lost money in the mar­kets. On fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion, it usu­ally turned out that they lost money due to other rea­sons. They lost pa­tience and sold out in a crash. They owned one or a few shares. They fol­lowed a tip. They only had risky as­sets.

Mar­ket risk pays off in the end be­cause i t com­bats in­fla­tion risk, which is your big­gest threat.
