Thomas S. Caldwell applies this basic set of investing principles gained during his more than 55 years of experience from his earliest days as an advisor with some of the best known Canadian investment firms and bank investment departments. He suggests that investors may find them useful when considering their investment plans, objectives, and processes:
- Investing is a marathon, not a 100-yard dash.
- Time in the market is more important than market timing.
- Quell emotions prior to making investment decisions.
- Challenging economic times can lead to profitable investing opportunities.
- Invest only in proven quality.
- Never borrow to invest.
- Invest steadily and regularly over time, using disciplined processes.
