Important Investment Principles to Remember
As an investor, there are several important investment principles to remember during a period of market volatility. A few of these principles include:
Invest for the Long Term
Diversify Your Investment Portfolio
It will not assure a profit or protect you from a loss. It's simply a way to average out the cost of fund shares as the market fluctuates when investing for the long-term.
Working with your registered State Farm agent to understand how to invest for the long-term, diversify your portfolio and invest regularly can help ease the uncertainty created by a volatile market.
