Managed Bundles on the EasyEquities platform
Bundles of joy come in all shapes and sizes, and the level of excitement around the EasyEquities managed bundle offering is no exception.
Brand legend Standwa Nongauza at EasyEquities recently posted an excellent overview of the managed bundles on offer on the EasyEquities platform titled “Monthly Bundle Returns - Feb 2020 and YTD."
Here are some of the noteworthy excerpts from the article:
“The year continues in dramatic fashion in the markets as the coronavirus takes its toll on global supply and demand factors. Despite the volatility, some long-term investors seem to be riding the waves out, sticking to the age-old adage that 'It's not about timing the markets, it's about time in the markets.' with the outlook that the markets always correct themselves over the medium to long run.”
“In the month of February, Cartesian Capital's #INVEST Conservative Income portfolio was among the best performers in what was otherwise a tricky month.”
Standwa also mentioned that “We create this guide to give greater insight into the various bundles we provide. It's now in your hands how you pick and choose the right co-pilot in your investing adventure.”
What does EasyResearch say
The active vs passive investment strategy debate has been raging on for some time now with both sides of the investment coin making their cases. Both these options have pros and cons, that doesn't mean the one option is better suited for an investor than the other.
Don't panic, If applied correctly, both passive (ETFs) and active (Bundle) investment strategies can diversify the investor’s portfolio to curb downturns in volatile market conditions.
The client adoption of both these offerings has been exceptional considering the recent volatility in the markets. With some of these bundle offerings available for Tax Free Savings (TFSA) and Retirement Annuity (RA) accounts, the influx in interest is set to continue.
Diversify, Diversify, Diversify, we cannot stress this enough, and with all these investment options at the investor's disposal, the investor is armed and ready to take on the market.
Catch sight on how our bundles performed in January. Check out last month's bundle performance review!
