World Investor Week 2021

The New Zealand theme for World Investor Week 2021 was ‘Investing FOMO?  Take a Mo’ which supported FMA research that almost one-third of investors using online platforms said they’d jumped into an investment in the last two years because they didn’t want to miss out.

We’re helping New Zealanders take a mo before they jump into an investment. If you’ve got investing FOMO, first consider the Five D’s of DIY investing.

The Five D’s of DIY Investing

For World Investor Week New Zealand 2021, the FMA promoted The Five D’s of DIY Investing: 

  1. Do your due diligence
  2. Drip feed your investments
  3. Diversify
  4. Don’t freak out if markets go down
  5. In Doubt? Talk to a financial adviser.
