The day after Brexit, I decided to be supportive of the British people and headed over to the British Motor Car dealership to check out if there were any deals. After all, the FTSE 250 had collapsed by 12% the first day of trading after the vote. Moose, my beloved Discovery II that I had driven between 2005 – 2014 was part of the Land Rover family. He was great and I kinda miss him.
As a person who worked in Equities his entire career, I have this Pavlov’s Dog instinct of always wanting to spend money when I see opportunity. This instinct can sometimes get me in trouble as it’s very similar to the “buy more, save more” mentality where you end up buying things you don’t need. During times of financial chaos, financial discipline is paramount!
