Time, Inverse, Simulation simple dynamical system, speed issue

Attached you find a simulation of 5 dynamical systems each consisting
of 1000 Periods. For each period t = 1,...,1000 an inverse of a 2x2m
matrix needs to be computed.
It takes about 6 seconds to simulate the 5 dynamical systems. I would
be grateful for any hint in getting the simulation done much quicker.
It seems that calculating the inverse

Wel = N[Inverse[
        2] - ThetaMatrix.LamRho, Method -> \
DivisionFreeRowReduction].ThetaMatrix.divi, 1000]

takes most of the time, therefore I tried to solve the problem
numerically (see above). This is a lot faster then using just
Inverse[...]. I tried LinearSolve, but it is slower then the above.
Decreasing the precision can result in a significant error, depending
on the parameter constellation.

As you might have guessed I have to simulate not only 5 dynamical
systems for different parameter  constellations. I would also like to
increase the order of the matrix that needs to be inverted.

Here is the code. Thanks in advance. Kristoph

<< Statistics`ContinuousDistributions`;(*packages and starting values
needed for the simulation*)
<< Graphics`MultipleListPlot`;

Wel = {5, 5};
Lam = {{1/2, 2/3}, {1/2, 1/3}};
Rho = {{1/2, 0}, {0, 648/1000}};
RelDiv = {{2/3, 1/3}, {1/3, 2/3}, {1, 0}};
theta[i_, k_] := Lam[[i, k]]*Rho[[i, i]]*Wel[[i]]/Sum[Lam[[j,
k]]*Rho[[j, j]]*Wel[[j]], {j, 1, 2}];

Timing[For[n = 1, n =E2=89=A4 5, n++,(*begin loop for the 5 simulations o=

    Wel = {5, 5};(*starting values*)

    For[t = 0, t =E2=89=A4 1000, t++,(*begin loop for the dynamical system
consiting of t = 1000 Periods*)
      ThetaMatrix = Table[theta[i, k], {i, 1, 2}, {k, 1, 2}];
      AppendTo[ThetaTable, ThetaMatrix];
      AppendTo[RelWel, Rho[[1, 1]]*Wel[[1]]/Total[Rho.Wel]];
      x[t] = Random[];(*random pertubations are drawn from the above

=A4 2/3,
        divi = Div[[2, All]], divi = Div[[3, All]]]];

      Wel = N[Inverse[IdentityMatrix[2] -
                Method -> DivisionFreeRowReduction].ThetaMatrix.divi,
1000];(*the inverse needed for t + 1*)
      ];(*end loop dynamical system*)

    Do[AppendTo[Value[t], RelWel[[t]]], {t, 1, 1000}];
    ListPlot[RelWel, PlotStyle -> {Hue[.8]}, PlotRange -> {0, 1},
ImageSize -> 350]
Clear[RelWel, ThetaTable];
