Investing for the Future: Annabel Shand Debunks Common Share Market Myths and Guides Clients

Annabel Shand, SMC Old Girl, is advising a new breed of highly educated women in the workforce creating their own wealth in her role as Investment Adviser at Craigs Investment Partners.

If you invest in the share market, you will lose all your money, is a common myth that Annabel Shand, SMC Old Girl, comes up against in her work as an Investment Advisor for Craigs Investment Partners. 

As a highly experienced investment advisor Annabel advises her clients in all aspects of investments involving cash, shares, fixed interest, and private equity. Specialising in portfolio management for private clients, family trusts and charitable organisations, Annabel understands her clients’ financial goals, risk tolerance, and investment preferences and works alongside them to help them achieve their financial goals. 

Common myths that Annabel debunks include losing all your money by investing in shares and that if markets are falling, you should sell or stop investing. Annabel says, “Qualified investment specialists give quality advice and have been investing through many investment cycles. Education and a long investment time frame is the best way to dispel any misconceptions. We are here to guide you through the good and the bad times.”

Not asking for help, putting it off for another day and listening to the wrong people are common financial mistakes, Annabel explains.

Annabel is proud to work for Craigs IP as they celebrate 40 years of thriving through years of significant world, national, and stock market events by adapting to a changing world while holding true to their values. “We are proudly New Zealand owned by current and former employees and directors, and deeply invested in the success of our clients and our communities,” she says.

Meeting people and listening to their stories is what Annabel enjoys most about her work, advising hard-working people and helping them become a part of the Craigs’ family, especially a new breed of highly educated women in the workforce creating their own wealth, women Annabel can relate to as she carves her own path to success.
