Long-term investing: Core principles every investor should know

They can help you keep moving toward your goals, no matter what the markets are doing


KNOWING YOUR FINANCIAL GOALS and what you ultimately want to achieve are essential to pursuing long-term investment success, says Kirsten Cabacungan with the Chief Investment Office (CIO) for Merrill and Bank of America Private Bank.  In this conversation with Chief Investment Officer Chris Hyzy, Cabacungan discusses how to maintain a disciplined approach and stay anchored in your goals, even during the market’s ups and downs.


The two also discuss the somewhat surprising benefits that volatility can offer, the potential risks of holding too much cash, and why – when it comes to investing —time is definitely on your side.
