Do investors understand the math that drives successful investment returns? 
Investors often let emotions drive their decisions around investing. That's where you come in. 
Helping investors understand how cold, rational math is often the key driver to long-term investing success may help them stick to the financial plans you build for them. 
This white paper focuses on four core, interconnected mathematical principles that are instrumental to achieving better investment results over time:
  1. The importance and power of compounding
  2. The value of avoiding large losses
  3. The importance of variance drain
  4. The importance of a non-normal distribution of returns
