The importance of investing for the long term

The importance of investing for the long term

Investing with a long-term outlook is the best way for you to reduce the impact of stock market fluctuations and to grow your investment over time.

Over the long term, there is an upward trend of returns from equities and bonds, despite the short-term volatility caused by major evenets.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
