But unfortunately, for many investors, that’s where the similarity ends. While their new car is pampered, polished and protected, their investment is more likely to be stuck away at the back of the kitchen drawer. While their valuable motor vehicle dominates much of their waking thoughts, their valuable investment is out of sight – and sadly, out of mind. These people keep their cars in excellent condition over the years by regular servicing; prompt attention to mechanical problems, even a cut and polish every now and then. Unfortunately, while they protect their cars from the adverse effects of time and environment, ever-changing conditions chip away at their other valuable investment.
