    • The more time you have the lower the overall risk of your investment
    • The less time you have, the more calculated risk you may want to or need to take
  • Procrastination and over complicating
    • For every day you Delay committing to yourself will result in you eventually needing to take a higher risk or make an ill informed decision … because your time in the market will now be shorter

    • Hence matching the Investment Vehicle to your Goals, giving you every opportunity of coming out with more funds as a direct result
    • Why wouldn’t you?
