A little bit of risk can yield great rewards.
It’s a big decision to set aside money today to pay for tomorrow’s dreams, but as with anything in life, a little bit of risk can yield great rewards.
Whether you’ve just begun to save for the future or you’re close to retirement, there are some basic principles and guidelines that apply to everyone.

Time-Tested Investment Strategies
- Buy and hold for the long term. For most investors, financial goals, like retirement, are a ways away. Ride out short-term volatility and stay focused on the long-term performance of your investments.
- Invest on schedule. Dollar cost averaging (DCA)1 is an impressive-sounding name for a simple strategy: investing a pre-determined amount of money on a regular basis, such as once a month. DCA takes the emotion and guesswork out of investing, and makes this important wealth-building activity a habit.
- Take advantage of compounding. Even if you invest a relatively small amount of money on a regular basis, you may still be able to pursue large goals over time thanks to the power of compounding. This is when your previous earnings from an investment remain invested and in turn earn more money for you.

1. Dollar cost averaging can neither guarantee a profit nor prevent against a loss. Because it involves continuous investment in the securities regardless of fluctuating price levels of such securities, you should consider your financial ability to continue to invest through periods of low prices before participating in this program.
