There are more ways to invest than ever before, and we’re here to provide a clearer path toward your financial goals, whether you are a beginner or seasoned investor. To create the kind of wealth that allows you to achieve your financial goals, you must be willing to stick to a strategy.
Building wealth means different things to different people. Perhaps you want to fund a dream vacation, or put your children through college, or retire at a certain age. Each goal requires planning, dedication and a strategy. It is important to focus on the investment factors within your control.
Savings Rate, NOT Rate of Return
The better you are at putting money away, the less dependent you may be on needing high returns and taking on high levels of risk.
Transaction costs are the charges, fees and expenses paid to operate the investment.
Taxes can be owed on interest, dividends and capital gains
Lower cost = higher net return.
When you witness the market making big swings, it can be awfully tempting to try timing the market and attempting to buy or sell based on the direction the market may be headed.
