Automatic Investments

Automatic investing is considered a core strategy for achieving financial success. It's a smart and easy way to make regular contributions and commit to your overall investment plan.

Eliminate the Guesswork

Markets will have their ups and downs. But automatic investing may help keep your investments on a steady course. It's a proactive approach that can help you avoid emotional decisions and knee-jerk reactions to volatility.

Let Market Swings Work for You

Investing a set amount every month eliminates the temptation to quit investing if the markets aren't going your way (or perhaps the temptation to invest more when markets are peaking). In other words, you buy more shares when prices are low and fewer shares when prices are high.

This dollar-cost averaging strategy does not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets. To fully take advantage of it, be prepared to continue investing at regular intervals, even during economic downturns.

Put Time on Your Side

Even small amounts have the potential to grow and compound over time, helping get you closer to your financial goals. See how investing $50, $100 or $200 a month can pay off.
