"Patience is the decisive factor when it comes to investment success – there are studies to prove it. But even if we (intend to) follow goals we have set ourselves as part of a long-term strategy, we can be diverted from our plan by events that occur in the present.
Odysseus had himself tied to the mast of his ship so that he would not be tempted by the bewitching song of the sirens. The same principle still applies today: Nobel prize-winner Richard Thaler developed what is referred to as the «planner-doer model». To be successful, it takes far-sighted planning as well as «doer» qualities."

"Studies prove that 80% of investment success is linked to an investment strategy that is implemented systematically and followed with discipline. A promising strategy depends first and foremost on your targets, needs, investment horizon and risk tolerance capacities. The ideal investment combination can be derived from these different elements.
Build on a sound strategy and stick to it in a disciplined manner even when faced with price fluctuations and personal doubts – this will allow you to reach your investment goals."
