Periodic investing

Small steps to grow your capital

Did you know that you don’t need to invest a large amount in one go to start investing? You can just as well invest a small amount on a regular basis over a longer period of time. This is what we call ‘periodic investing’. In the long run, periodic investing could even earn you better returns. Why? Let us explain.

Spread risk over time

A good investor knows that spreading risk is key in earning better returns in the long term. You can do exactly that by investing in different products, but also by spreading your investments over time. When you invest periodically, your returns will be more resistant to stock market volatility. Possible dips in the market will then not hit you as hard. By spreading your stock market entry over time, you prevent yourself from entering at the wrong time.


Start slow

It is a major misconception that you need a lot of money to be able to get into investing. The periodic investing option lets you start investing in small steps to gradually build up your capital for later one small amount at a time. Needless to say, even though you’re investing small amounts, it is still important that you only invest money that you don’t need right now, because you could lose all or part of your investment.


Take advantage of good trading days

When it comes to earning better returns, you really don’t need to check the stock markets every day and buy and sell a lot. Your returns over a whole year are driven mainly by a combination of good and bad trading days over that year. With periodic investing, you are continuously investing and may just generate better returns.

Remember that you can always stop investing or switch to an investment fund with lower risk within the selection available for your investment option.
