My Investment Philosophy & The Circle of Competence

Dear investors today I decided to talk about My Investment Philosophy. This is where and how I like to invest. My time horizon is 20 to 50 years from now. So I usually don’t worry about the short term or medium-term volatility. Because investing is not a T20I or ODI it’s a TEST MATCH and it is played 365 days a year. So I like to stay in the crease as long as possible because if you stay long enough in the crease you know how the track is and how the ball is swinging. You may score 0 runs in your first 50 balls, score a 50 in the next 25 balls, you get to hit boundaries once in a while and all this will happen only if you stay in the crease.
