With the current volatility trends in the market, many of us are wondering what to expect in the coming months and years. The S&P is down over 20%, inflation is on the rise, and consumers are concerned. The reality is that many investors are facing major losses. Conservative investors are even experiencing volatility in their fixed-income investments. Despite these fears, the economy is doing well and while we don’t know for certain whether a recession will occur, we know we don’t have a market problem. What we’re facing is an investor and inflation problem.

Avoiding sequence or timing risk is what impacts returns more than the market. Join us today as Laura and Michael break down the current and future trends we expect to see in the market and how it may impact retirees.
