  • Although almost everyone knows that long-term stock market investments have significantly outperformed returns available from deposit accounts, some people are put off investing in the stock market because of the worry that short term fluctuations could result in them losing money. Timing is almost impossible to get right and you have little influence however time in the market is your choice. This is why we recommend a minimum of 5 years, as it potentially gives the investment an opportunity to perform.
