What are the most important things to bear in mind at times like these?
We tend to believe that we live in the most uncertain of times, but we do not. We will get through this as we have gotten through each of the past crises of our time and throughout history. In the period from 1998-2018, we experienced the tech wreck, a terror attack, a global financial crisis, the European debt crisis, Brexit, and many infectious disease scares (H1N1, SARS, Ebola, and MERS) and the S&P 500 Index still climbed 7% per year.12 A $100,000 investment in the market in 1998 would today be worth over $400,000.13 Think long term and stay the course.
Stay positive & healthy, and should you wish to discuss the current market environment give us a call.
