What Do Dentistry And Financial Advice Have In Common

You can do both yourself, but I'd strongly recommend against it!

Both dentists and financial advisers possess years of training and experience, and provide tailored solutions to meet an individual’s circumstances.  However, thanks to the vast swathes of information on the internet, we’ve seen a rise in the number of people opting to carry out these specialised services themselves.

While DIY can empower individuals and offer cost-saving opportunities, in fields like dentistry and investing, it's crucial to strike a balance.

Of course DIY dentistry gone wrong might be more obvious to the untrained eye, there is potential to cause just as severe long term damage by investing incorrectly.

Here are just a few drawbacks of DIY investing:

Lack of Knowledge:

Investing requires a good understanding of financial markets, various investment products, and economic trends. A lack of knowledge could cause you to make uninformed decisions and in turn lead to significant losses.

Emotional Bias:

DIY investors are susceptible to making impulsive decisions based on emotions, especially in times of high volatility and market fluctuations. Acting on feelings of fear and greed, can have disastrous consequences on your overall investment strategy.

Tax Implications:

Holding on to as much of any gains you earn is just as important as earning them in the first place. And without proper knowledge of tax legislation, DIY investors often fail to mitigate their tax liability potentially leading to higher or in some cases completely unexpected tax bills.

Lack of Discipline:

Investing is a bit like going to the gym.  Success requires disciple and commitment. And like gym-goers, DIY investors can often struggle to maintain a disciplined investment approach.  This could lead to missed opportunities.
