Sport and investing have a lot in common - grasp opportunities, avoid mistakes and defend your gains. Yet, winning all starts with a plan

The Olympics provides a fun lens to look at this commonality, as many athletes have followed a carefully crafted plan to the starting block. This plan is often four years in the making, guided by a coach who makes little adjustments depending on injuries and the competitive landscape. You’ll be hard pressed to find any athlete on the podium that just wings it.
