Founded in 1924, most investors credit MFS Investment Management as the inventor of the modern-day mutual fund. With nearly 100 years of industry experience, MFS has been through it all: bull markets, bear markets, recessions, depressions, expansions, and booms.
We filmed this webinar in March 2020, at the beginning of what would become a historic bear market followed by a record-breaking recovery. The stock market’s ebbs and flows are entirely normal but can be challenging for many investors to stomach. Thus, we saw this as an excellent opportunity to take a look at history—how can investors take past experience and implement it into your financial strategies moving forward?
Joined by Geoff Sweezy, Director at MFS, we explore four principles shared by resilient and intelligent investors:
- Understand Market Movements
- Volatility is Normal
- You Control Your Emotions and Behaviors
- Take a Longer View
Sure, the video's title promises ten principles, but we only had time for the four that we thought were the most suitable. If you have questions about your long-term investment horizon, call our office at (303) 261-8015 or schedule a free consultation with one of our Denver-based advisors.
