March 25, 2017 – Are you nervous when the market goes down? Your time horizon, goals, and risk tolerance are key factors in ensuring you have the right investment strategy for you. Even if your time horizon is long enough to warrant an aggressive portfolio, you have to be comfortable with the short-term ups and downs that will regularly occur. If watching your balances fluctuate is too nerve-racking, or causes you to do the wrong thing at the wrong time, you may need to re-evaluate whether your investment portfolio is right. Set realistic expectations and remember that being too conservative too soon may not provide the growth potential you need to achieve your long term goals, especially when you consider inflation and a longer life expectancy. Professional advice is proven to help.
