At ACMIIL, the first thing we tell our long-term investors is to carry on investing month after month in the markets, ignore market movements. This is for one simple reason – none of the movement is permanent, neither the ups nor the downs. In fact, the only thing that would be permanent is the long-term return that you would derive from your investment.

Obviously, doubts tend to creep into your mind during phases when markets are down. Typical concerns that investors raise include saying that they invested in the markets recently and are not benefiting since the markets are down. What do they do in that scenario? Do they continue with their investment or what steps do they take?

Here are three things you need to know about your journey as a long-term investor.

Be patient with your investments

During your investment journey, there will be periods where some of your monthly investments will be losing money. Moreover, for periods that are less than 3 years, there is a slim chance that all your investments could possibly be in the red. However, the biggest upshot is that over a longer period, the gains from your investment tend to outweigh the losses.

Always think long-term for good results from your investment

The conclusion is simple. You must invest in the equity markets only if you have planned an investment horizon of a minimum of 5 years. Ideally, a horizon of 7-10 years or an even longer period is preferable. One thing you must always remember is that you should not invest with an objective of making quick money. You must invest with the major objective of long-term wealth accumulation. In case you have doubts, come to professional experts.
