#5 with Nadine Mezher
Nadine Mezher is a Co-Founder at Sarwa - the 1st Robo-Advisor in the Middle East. Sarwa raised an $8.4M Series-A earlier this year and is based in DIFC. In this episode, we discuss investing vs. trading stocks. Trading can be extremely dangerous, especially when you're new to the game or forced into margin trading as with most CFD brokers. Not only does it require a strong grasp of technical analyses and business fundamentals, but more importantly, it mandates extreme discipline, patience, bankroll management skills and a consistent mental A-game.
Even then, there are too many unpredictable forces at play that 'rig' the imperfect game of active trading. Like the famous Economist John Maynard Keynes said, “the markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent".
That's why for retail investors, having a long-term, passive investment strategy for a big portion of an investment portfolio can be the optimal approach to maximize wealth and balance risk & reward.
