Key Questions for the Long-Term Investor
Focusing on what you can control can lead to a better investment experience. And actually, the only things you should be focusing on are the aspects that you can control. Much of what you hear and read from so-called investment experts is not grounded in fact, or any rigorous academic research. For today's "Fun Fact", we turn to our friends at Dimensional Fund Advisors, who have built a world-class investment firm based on academically-tested principles. Whether you utilize their solutions or not, it is absolutely essential that you understand this basic philosophy of investing. It is a primary component of what we do here at Artifex Financial Group and it's good for your financial health.
