Navigating Market Volatility
The history of the financial markets can tell us one thing – volatility is a normal part of investing.
The U.S. market in particular has been dynamic and resilient in moving on from crisis after crisis throughout history. The recent market volatility should remind plan participants to focus on what they should be doing on a regular basis: Be mindful of the situation, but diligent about your investment strategy.
Investment Tenets to Consider:
- Emotional investing can be hazardous. Bailing out of the market is typically an imprudent action, often detrimental to reaching future long-term retirement goals.
- Data indicates that attempting to time the market generally proves futile.
- Diversification can help soften negative impacts.
Diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
