It’s a Bear Market – What Should I Do?

March 17, 2020

Yep.  We’re officially in a “bear market” and you are wondering what you should do next.  In most cases, the answer is nothing at all.  A bear market, defined as a decline of more than 20% from its previous high, occurs with some regularity and has occurred approximately once in every five years since WWII.

An Important Message From Portfolio Advisors

Due to concerns over the current health crisis we are encouraging alternatives to face to face meetings.  In doing so, we are now conducting client meetings on the phone using screen sharing and video conferencing software (Zoom) where possible.

In addition to the above, we are reducing in-office staff to essential personnel with most of our staff working remotely.  As such, all staff members have been assigned a direct phone number where they can be reached during normal business hours.  Additionally, all staff members will remain available via email and will check their messages regularly.  We do not anticipate interruptions to our normal work flow or our ability to serve you.

Return on Life - "Do Your Spending Habits Align with Your Goals?"

Typical conversations with financial advisors have  historically revolved around client cash flow needs, returns, savings rates, taxes and the economic environment. Although these discussions warrant review, as practitioners within the industry of providing comprehensive financial advice we continue to evolve in our approach by implementing new tools and insights. The concept of Return on Life focuses on a more encompassing value proposition as opposed to measuring success based solely by return on investment. The Return on Life belief system views money as a tool, which aids in providing the best quality of life possible given the resources available. Through experience, understanding of our clients’ backgrounds, belief systems and values, we ultimately enable deeper measurements of well-being and financial progress.

Key to our focus on Return on Life planning is a deeper understanding of how clients view and use their money.  In doing so, we gain insight into determining if their use of money  aligns with their goals and what they  ultimately want out of life. Expertise in understanding our clients’  story is central, with the numbers viewed peripherally. Dimensions beyond the financial data is as important as the data itself.   By engaging in Return on Life discussions, more substantive and fruitful discussions ultimately provide superior and more gratifying planning experiences.
