VANCOUVER — As a senior adviser at Vanguard, the global wealth management company, I often hear about the long-term benefits of investing in the stock market.
I also hear about how the long run has an impact on wealth.
So I asked my clients to share their thoughts on the topic.
I received more than 1,000 responses.
I compiled a list of my top 10 picks for investing in stocks in 2018.
Vanguard Total Stock Market Index (VTSMX) (ETF) Vanguard’s Total Stock Exchange Market Index, VTSMX, has risen to a record $8.9 trillion in 2018 and is expected to surpass $10 trillion in 2019.
VTSX has grown from 1,936 shares at the start of 2018 to 2,746 shares at last year’s close.
Its market cap is now $4.7 trillion.
The VTSM is the biggest and most liquid of the major ETFs, trading in nearly 3,000 different stocks.
Investors are also able to choose between stocks listed on both the VTS and VTSN platforms.
Its a great place to diversify your investments if you are looking for a long-dated stock that will rise or fall in value.
Its also a great way to diversification if you need to get a little bit ahead of the curve with your investing.
Vanguard FTSE All-Country World Index (VWAGI) FTSe All-World Index (AWEW), an index that tracks the S&P 500, has also increased by a whopping 400 percent over the past five years.
