This economic cycle has been a long one, seven years without a slowdown. Any other time, people would be near the doors, ready to get out. But this market has been slowly evolving and though many people thought they could outsmart the market over the last seven years, those who took a long-term strategic mindset—measuring success in the capital markets over years and decades, not weeks and quarters—are the ones who did well. Investment thinkers who apply the long-term view also see abundant opportunities in the next 10 years. At the forefront of that thinking includes technological innovation, global interconnectedness, the rise of global consumers, and rising interest rates.
