Slow and Steady Wins the Race

June 16, 2021

Think back to when you were growing up. There was a fable around the Tortoise and the Hare, in which the Tortoise ended up winning a race between the two. Now take this metaphor and think about the way people go about investing their money. While the Hare can get some nice short-term returns, that person often thinks they can select the “winners” and “losers” when investing and will see a lot of volatility in their portfolio. Compared with the Tortoise, which is someone who will set their money aside into a slow and steady approach, taking less risk with methodical steps to build their wealth in a safer way.

If you find yourself relating to, or wanting to learn more about, the Tortoise investing style, this is where First National Bank and Trust Company can step in.
