Hi Sir Gil,
You are such a blessing. Thank you so much for your posts. I’m learning a lot about investing. I just have a question about this post:
Does it mean that it’s more practical to just invest your money for just one year because by the 3rd yr and beyond, the % return is so low. Please help me out, maybe I just don’t understand the numbers. Thanks so much!

Gil December 10, 2010 at 03:15

Hi Edgar,

In mutual fund unvesting, the best strategy is leveraging
meaning, you will invest a certain amount of money in regular period, say P10,000 quarterly.
In the end, your gain will be in average. There are years with low gain because of
economic crisis like in 2008, but over all, your gain in MF is much better than time deposit.
