Our Expectation: Stocks Will Act Like Stocks
Step 1: Rebalancing
Step 2: New Core Holdings
How Much is Too Much?
How much risk can you tolerate? Would you be uncomfortable if your portfolio was down 10% in the next six months? What about 20% or more? Our 5-minute risk assessment questionnaire (powered by Riskalyze) will help you identify your appetite for risk and reward. We can then take a look at your accounts to see if your investments align with the results.
Most of these changes will occur in IRA’s or other types of accounts which don’t create a tax bill for you. If there are changes which need to be made in a taxable account, we will call you to discuss the tax implications.
What’s Happening Now is a podcast talking about current events which impact your bottom line.
