Patience Wins®

The goal of a marathon run is fairly simple - to reach the finish line 26.2 miles away. Your race to financial security can be simple too, as soon as you determine your goals.

Once you know where you’re headed, it’s easier to chart your course. Novice investors, like amateur runners, are wise to use caution to avoid harming themselves.

Just like you would use a trainer to help you run a marathon, many new investors choose mutual funds because they offer the convenience and skills of professional management.

But even though someone else is making many of the investment decisions, it’s important to learn the basics, remain disciplined and exercise patience.
