If you stick with that long-term perspective, you realize you don’t have to feel rushed to do anything.
– Iain Butler, Chief Investment Advisor for Motley Fool Canada


We all know I’m a hardcore index fund investor and love to talk about the benefits of passive investing for building long-term wealth. But I’m also often asked if I invest in individual stocks, to which I answer “Yes, I do actually.” One of the ways that I learn about potential stocks to invest in is Motley Fool Canada, and Chief Investment Advisor Iain Butler joins me on today’s bonus episode of the podcast to talk stocks in-depth.

Motley Fool Canada offers financial and investing research and education, and Iain has been an employee with them since 2012. He is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and the Lead Advisor on Fool Canada’s flagship Stock Advisor Canada product. His investing interests are centered on scouring the market for interesting businesses that trade at under-valued prices and offer an appealing risk/reward relationship. 

In this episode, Iain shares why you should still have your overall portfolio in mind when investing in individual stocks and how having a long-term strategy is key to earning a greater return and reaching your investment goals. We also talk about the feelings of FOMO when it comes to the growing popularity of NFTS, meme stocks, and cryptocurrencies, and why Motley Fool Canada is a great place to learn more about how to invest in today’s market with their daily updates and research.
