Dealing with imperfect information

June 2016 Newsletter | Investing in the stockmarket must be the perfectionist’s worst nightmare. There is often no clear right or wrong investment. There is never a value equation that can actually be solved.

What’s more, there is an endless stream of available information on any potential investment. One can research a particular company ad nauseam over many years and still not have perfect knowledge of it. Successful investing requires sensible decision making in the absence of having complete knowledge.
