Does “timing the market” work or does “buy and hold” work?

“Buy and Hold” or “Buy and Hope?”

Buy and Hold is an investment strategy that could work greatly to your benefit. But it’s not as simple as picking multiple funds, dumping money into them, and going on your way forever.

Kevin Engbers, CAP®, CEPA®, Wealth Advisor gives great insights and tips into this investment strategy. Why shorter-term bonds vs. longer term bonds? How do policy changes affect bonds?  Why is timing the market futile?  Why does “buy and hold” not tell the whole story?

Let us help you set goals and set yourself up for long-term success based around your goals.
