At TFR Global, we are very selective about the equity investments that we recommend which is why we use a disciplined approach to recommend only those that align with our client’s investment philosophy.
We will always recommend that you stick with quality stock, with diversification, over the long term when possible. With more than 65,000 individual stocks and numerous stock funds available around the world, it can be difficult to select the right ones.
Because we are committed to quality investments, we invariably won’t promote the hottest, newest stock you heard about from ‘a friend’. Over time, we've found that most people who go down that path are disappointed and this is why there are investments we just won't recommend.
Quality stock can produce both current dividends and long-term dividend growth and will usually offer greater consistency and less volatility than lower-quality, non-dividend-paying stocks.
We believe higher-quality companies, B+ rated and higher, usually are able to generate more consistent earnings and dividend growth. Historically, this has helped them perform better during down markets.
Diversification is a strategy to help make sure your investments aren't concentrated in a certain type or area. For example, an industry can experience a ‘bubble’ where stocks become overpriced and don't really have any track record to speak of. When the bubble bursts, these investors lose their principal. Spreading your money among many different sectors can help reduce your risk.
This is why we have teams of analysts who explore all of the financial markets for opportunities, and this is what sets us apart. ETFs, IPOs and commodities are just some of the recommendations that we offer our clients to ensure their market diversification and returns are achieved.
Quality and diversification work only if you hold your investments through both good and bad markets. Even quality stocks can go down if the market drops, which may cause you to second-guess your strategy. Don't. Remember why you're investing and, whenever needed, simply speak with your TFR Global advisor for advice.
Invariably, as the holding period gets longer, the swings between the ‘best’ and the ‘worst’ get less and less dramatic. Don’t lose sight of the importance of time. Focus on the long term but remain astute during short-term market volatility as this can be key to securing your returns.
