MyMoney Online, The Personal Finance series with Warren Ingram

What boxing (and cage fighting) can teach us about investing

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Galileo Capital Financial Advisor Warren Ingram for his weekly personal finance feature.

Ingram spoke about what cage fighting and boxing can teach us about investing.

Scroll down for quotes from the audio below.

Floyd Mayweather ended his career unbeaten. He’s nickname was ‘Money’. And he did it by boxing very ugly.

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor

Mayweather knew he couldn’t knock anybody out and he didn’t want to get punched. But he kept going for 12 rounds. This is like ‘value investing’.

Conor McGregor is tiny and disrespectful of everybody.

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor

Conor McGregor chose an average fighter as opponent – and got smashed. This is like choosing last year’s best performing fund .

Warren Ingram, Galileo Capital Financial Advisor

You might own a Floyd Mayweather right now. It might not go well in round three. But, remember, you’re in it for 12 rounds.
