Family Office Definition: Dollar Cost Averaging

Dollar Cost Averaging definition:  Dollar cost averaging is an investment strategy of smoothing out long term investment returns.  A set dollar amount is invested on a regular basis to purchase shares.  When share prices are high, fewer shares are purchased with a set dollar amount. When share prices are low, more shares are purchased with a set dollar amount.  Over time, the average cost to the investor is lower and returns are not dependent on a large chunk of money invested at one particular time.
