The timeless tools of investing

Livewire Exclusive

The allure of fast money and the ‘fear of missing out’ toy with investors on a daily basis. Right now valuations of companies exposed to themes like electric vehicles, medicinal marijuana and emerging infant formula markets could be described as ‘effervescent’.

Indeed, fads and trends have been always been a part of equity investing. Anton Tagliaferro from Investors Mutual tells us that over the 30 years he has been investing there have been countless fads, however, very few of them are enduring.

In the latest episode of Livewire’s exclusive CIO Profile series, Tagliaferro talks us through the investment principles that have proven to be essential tools in a career spanning three decades.

I suppose the one thing I’ve learnt over thirty years is to always buy today whatever you’ll feel comfortable holding if there is a big change of mood next week.

Topics discussed

  • Dealing with ‘noise’ in the markets today.
