So there we have the new year. What is on our mind? A world with many question marks ??? 
In such an environment, eliminating anxiety is the Nr. 1 priority! That is a truth already in normal times: look at the psychology of management and how we tick when making decisions: we have to cover ourselves in the back and keep it simple. Today this is still more valid.

Moreover, they are predictable as few other investments are. Finally it is a simple & reliable approach to resilience. As a direct consequence it is the road to peace of mind that we all need. 

Let’s start well and hurry up to close the drain.
