‘Do the best you can, where you are, with what you have, now’ - African-American Proverb
When it comes to investments, it is very important not to dwell on past mistakes. All of us would love to be 100% invested in the Hindsight Fund. Unfortunately it does not exist. Sometimes investments disappoint. Sometimes they go wrong. Anyone who claims to get things right every time should be treated with the utmost suspicion. BUT…..
….making mistakes and repeating them is a very different thing from making mistakes and learning from them, and then moving on.
Many of our clients come to us with investments that have not lived up to their expectations for whatever reasons. We passionately believe that you should make the most of what you have. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, ‘whatever you are, be a good one’. We are a discretionary investment manager, and we want to be a good one. Our clients, we hope, agree that we are. But we only succeed because we never stop trying to be the best. And we put our money where our mouth is because we have our own, our families’, and our colleagues’ money in our funds.
Why? Because we want to make the most of what we have.
