In the world of investing, the future is unknowable. ‘Uncertain’ is simply the way it is. How much uncertainty you can handle will determine your ultimate rate of return.
‘Certainty’ and rate of return are inversely related. If you want ‘certainty’, like a money market or a Treasury bond, your returns will be scant. Factor in inflation, and your ‘certain’ return is actually negative.
If you can accept ‘uncertainty’, now you’re in the game. Embrace uncertainly and buckle up for a wild and rewarding ride!
