Helping Clients Cope with Market Volatility

Financial Professionals often refer to the average rate of return of investment portfolios as a static or level number - but that does not tell the whole story because of the market’s inherent ups and downs. Research shows the timing and order of those returns can have significant effects on the total return of the portfolio. Understanding this so called “Sequence of Returns” can help these Financial Professionals recognize the importance of repositioning their clients’ investment portfolios for a favorable retirement income strategy in the future.
