Earlier this year Mark Machin, our President & CEO and Board Chair of FCLTGlobal, joined the ‘Going Long’ podcast to discuss how we implement our long-term strategy amid an unpredictable external environment. The discussion explored why diverse perspectives make us better investors, and which high-potential investment opportunities and market trends are worth watching in 2021.

One of our Investment Beliefs is that long-term investing can provide opportunities for greater rewards. Yet, to truly act in the long term, investors must possess genuine resiliency to internal and external short-term pressures.

Greater certainty of assets and predictability of cash flows allow truly long-term investors to resist the pressures of short-term market events, persist with soundly conceived strategies and await the rewards of patient investing. However, despite the proven financial advantages of investing for the long term, short-term investment pressures persist.

That’s why we’re an active partner of FCLTGlobal, a non-profit organization that develops research and tools to encourage long-term business and investing. As one of FCLTGlobal’s five founding members, we routinely engage in their ongoing collaborative process to bring together the entire global investment value chain. We emphasize initiatives, like encouraging the adoption of long-term tools in corporate boardrooms and by investors, that drive longer-term, sustainable returns for individual savers.
