Successful investing relies on many factors. Some can't be controlled—the returns of the markets, for example. But others can be. Vanguard believes in the importance of focusing on those things within an investor's control, and this philosophy is embedded in our four principles for investing success.
By helping your clients create clear, appropriate investment goals, develop suitable asset allocations, minimize expenses, and maintain perspective and long-term discipline, you give them the best chance of long-term success.
Investing can provoke strong emotions. In the face of market turmoil, some of your clients may find themselves making impulsive decisions or, conversely, becoming paralyzed by fear, unable to implement an investment strategy or rebalance a portfolio as needed.
