in the long run.
Understanding your risk profile and doing suitable asset allocation is key. Do not look at your peersí investments and returns as the investment needs of each individual are unique.
Pen your investment goals, the time horizon and the anticipated returns. For investments with a horizon of over five years, equity should be the asset class. Look at companies with growth potential and low debt on their books.
Remember, volatility is not risky. The sooner you understand this difference, the better your investment strategy. Smart investors always take advantage of the volatility to multiply their wealth.
