How long exactly is the long view? We found the perfect quote from Letters to a Young Poet to help answer that question.
“Ten years are nothing.” You will often hear the team at HIG use this exact phrase. When we say ten years are nothing, we mean that even ten years’ worth of data can be noise. If you look at the last ten years of data alone, you will see the ups and downs of crazy S&P 500 performance.
“Stands confidently in the storms of spring, not afraid that afterward summer may not come.” This line resonates with us because HIG clients have confidence, even in tumultuous times, knowing that taking the long view is the closest thing to certainty in investing. The longer into the future you go, the closer you get to 100% certainty of a positive return.
“Summer…comes only to those who are patient, who are there as if eternity lay before them.” Our clients will tell you that the long view is “longer than your lifetime” because we help them plan for the legacy they will leave that will continue on with those who aren’t even born yet.
“Patience is everything.” We continue to help our clients remain patient and look to the future when they will reap the benefits of remaining steadfast in their long view efforts.
