By: Oxana Saunders

today imageOne of the biggest challenges related to managing our money is figuring out how to preserve and grow our capital. These decisions are often influenced by personal biases and past financial mistakes or bad experiences we might have had. They can lead us to avoid investing in financial markets and only focusing on capital preservation by keeping money in savings accounts or CDs. This type of bias also leads to failure to realize the power of compounding interest and what it means for our investments long-terms.
