Finding Opportunities in the Chaos: Why You Should Invest During Market Volatility
2022 was a rough year for investors. And when the market becomes challenged, people begin to feel intimidated and might look to put their money elsewhere. And yes, investing involves risk, but don’t stick your head in the sand and think relying on bank interest will be enough to reach your goals because, historically, you will lose to inflation over the long term.

3 Things To Remember
- Beating inflation isn’t necessarily a year-to-year thing. You have to view beating inflation with a long-term mindset. The market may or may not beat inflation in a given year, but over time, the market usually crushes inflation. It’s the market’s job to beat inflation.
- If you keep money in cash or bonds, you would likely lose out to inflation in the long term, even with the interest you made. Not all interest keeps up with inflation.
- Before slowing your investment activity, ask yourself: are the market changes we’re experiencing outside the scope of what we expect from the market? If the answer is no, keep investing.
