This week I aim to share some brief insights that might be worth knowing when you are building an investment portfolio in Ireland.

Reminds me of that weird situation referred to as the ‘paradox of choice’ where, when confronted with too much choice we can stall, suffer from inaction and often make choices that are far from the ones that really wanted! Barry Schwartz’s TED Talk is here, worth a watch!

That same paradox seemingly happens to often to investors and pension-holders in Ireland also.
