Investment FAQ – Why does my adviser talk about taking a Long-Term Investment Timeframe?
Investment markets tend to move in cycles, and timing these cycles can be a difficult part of the investment process. By focussing on the longer term, investors can expect to smooth out the volatility of short-term asset price movements.
Perhaps even more importantly, by setting long-term financial goals investors are less pressured by short-term returns and less inclined to be forced into irrational or higher risk behaviour to achieve their targets.
