It’s Easier To Just Leave My Investing To Someone Else?
Yeah, it may well be easier, we don’t know what your life and timetable looks like, and certainly there’s a HUGE business dedicated to making investing more ‘convenient’ for the masses and even the richer people in the world.
In fact, places like Nutmeg evolved over time because they were similar to what rich people did, but with technology and rule changes, investing was democratised, to a degree. But what happened was the process was democratised, but, and this is one of the crucial points, the methodology and education about money didn’t.
People who are born into money, or even those that make it big in money, will be talking about money daily and have people around them that have knowledge in navigating the world of money.
They will be generationally wealthy and will be taught how to keep it in the family, how money makes money and the framework that is required to do that.
Which is why they will have a version of Nutmeg for themselves where others look after the money for them - but here’s the thing, they will know if the manager is right or wrong in investments.
To a degree they will have the terminology, and enough understanding and education about money to be able to challenge the outcome of the investing.
The problem with Nutmeg, which is great on many levels, is that in essence it’s just a convenience for most, and though it’s set out as otherwise, it’s a black box where money goes in, *something happens, and money comes out, or doesn’t.
It’s regulated, it's easy and it’s.. effective to a degree.
But how would you know if they have been doing their jobs properly?
Are they costing too much for what you could do yourself?
Is the convenience with the cost (there’s always a cost to convenience)?
How would you even know if they are doing it right and would you care?
What if there was a better way?
What if you could run a Nutmeg type account, know if it’s doing well or not, and balance it against something you are doing and compare them both.

This newsletter has kept my financial world in order. Dry British wit and a fun read, but also filled with relevant and remarkably helpful market insights. The author has many years of capital market experience and is an astute market observer – a Sherlock Holmes type for stock, bond and commodity markets almost at times … some of the thoughts and education have easily covered my fees for full coverage.

The HindeSight Letter is one of the newsletters I never miss reading! Always learn something with the historical connections to present day conundrums, in relation to business, finance and investments. Great educator and hugely helpful to making decisions on my own portfolios in these difficult times.
