The article discusses the benefits of long term investment strategies in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. According to market strategist Jeffrey Kleintop, annual stock returns will likely not rebound to pre-recession levels for several years. After the stock market crash in March 2009 investors continued to pull money out of stock mutual funds and as a result, in 2010, many of those same investors will have portfolios which are not maximized for long-term benefits. According to the author investors need to resist the urge to use the short-term strategy of chasing financial performance and instead pick funds that will likely show financial rewards over time.
