Market Volatility has the potential to erode your net worth. You can take steps now to help insulate your wealth against future market fluctuations.

Market Volatility Stirs The Emotions

It’s hard not to react when markets make sudden, large moves. Greed and fear are natural human emotions that, if given free rein, can lead investors to buy high and sell low. That can be a recipe for wealth destruction.

Planning is the Antidote to Panic

The time to handle market fluctuations is before they happen. Planning starts with an understanding of how your portfolio will react to volatility, and then making moves to restructure your wealth to fit your risk profile.

Asset Allocation is Key

Diversifying your investments across a broad set of asset types is a central feature of your wealth planning. Knowing your tolerance to risk, stage of life, and need for liquidity should shape your asset allocation so that you can tolerate volatility without it triggering sudden, unplanned reactions.

Your Financial Professional Has Planning Tools

When you work with a skilled wealth professional, you have access to planning tools that show how your portfolio might react to various market scenarios. Together, you and your financial professional can restructure your portfolio to match your risk profile. A properly structured portfolio will help you resist the knee-jerk impulse to do something when markets jump.

Replace Concern With Confidence

There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification and Asset Allocation do not protect against market risk.
