Mackenzie Global Low Volatility Fund

Emotional Decisions Can Cost Money

Research shows that investors tend to put more money into equity funds when the stock market is nearing its high, and sell when the market reaches a low point (see chart below). In other words, volatility can prompt investors to buy high and sell low. Those decisions can cost money and sleep.

Choosing a low-volatility investment strategy can help smooth out the market ride so that investors stay invested in equity markets longer, which gives them a chance to capture more upside.
