The Tell: Why a little apathy might be good for your long-term investment returns

Apathy doesn’t sound like a sensible investment philosophy, but it may be one of the most successful approaches a person can employ to grow wealth.

According to Barry Ritholtz, chairman and chief investment officer of Ritholtz Wealth Management, many investors spend too much time worrying about risks that are either statistically unlikely or, conversely, the kind of risk that ends up being good for their portfolios over the long haul.

“If you don’t want to invest in equities because you fear a market crash, then you should never be in equities, because equities always crash,” Ritholtz said, speaking at Morningstar’s annual ETF conference.
