The Question:

You have been told all your life that buy-and-hold is smart investing, but you remember all too well, what happened to you in 2008 with your buy-and-hold manager. What is the truth regarding management firms that promote buy-and-hold?

The Truth:

For buy-and-hold to work, two things have to occur:

  1. You will live forever, and

  2. You will never need the money.



So, why do 99% of all asset management firms promote buy-and-hold… invest for the long-haul… you must have a long-term investment horizon? They promote these concepts for their benefit; not for yours. If you agree to a long-term investment horizon, you will never complain about losses and you will continue to pay them their management fees, because your advisor will say something like, “Don’t worry, the market always comes back; and besides, you’re not a day-trader; you’re in it for the long-haul.”



Run as far away and as fast as you can from these firms.


Over the past 100 years, there have been four major bear markets. The average bear market has lasted for 19.5 years with an average loss of 62%. This includes the bear market corrections of 2002 and 2008.

Turner Capital has developed a mathematical process whereby all major bear markets can be detected early enough to avoid catastrophic losses. In the 2007/2008, an investor following the Turner Capital market-directional approach could have avoided the 50% sell-off and generated over twice the return of a buy-and-hold investor during 2007-2017.


Do not wait until the next bear market begins because it may be too late by then. Fire your buy-and-hold manager now and talk to us. You will be very glad you did.
