Robert is an advocate for a group of companies he calls his “Forever Assets.” Put simply, this is a group of stocks you can buy today and own for the rest of your life. These businesses have created wealth not just over weeks or years, but for generations.
When you own names like these, you no longer have to worry about inflation or bear markets. Many of these firms have paid dividends to shareholders for over a century. For this reason, some of the world’s wealthiest investors — including Bill Gates, George Soros, and Warren Buffett — hold these stocks in their portfolios.
