    • Hi Tom,

      thanks for sharing your thoughts on this topic!

      In my opinion, nothing has been more instructive than experiencing an extended period of poor performance (during which you may think you've been stupid), but then realizing that your analysis was correct and the market simply over-reacted. Of course also real errors can be very instructive...

      As Mr. Buffett puts it, "only when the tide goes out do you discover who has been swimming naked"!

      For private investor staying the course is much simpler as you're only responding to yourself, but I imagine that being forced to sell shares of good companies during a downturn just to make up for a big amount of panic-triggered redemptions must be a very stressful situation.

      So I agree that holding a fair amount of cash (and educating your investors on the rationale of your moves) is a good choice, especially because it also allows you to really allocate the right amount of money when big opportunities come around.

      Best Regards, Nicola
