Resources for Market Volatility

As 2020 continues to unfold, many investors are uncertain about how to navigate uncharted waters. Retirement account balances are bobbing up and down like a boat on stormy waters.

While facing a global pandemic is certainly a new feat we're figuring out together, we can borrow tried and true practices to help investors understand their next steps by answering these questions:

  • What should I do with my money in a falling market?
  • Can I still retire in 2020 or in the next few years?
  • Is this the time to buy?
  • Will I lose all my money?

Uncertain times can feel like investors' worst nightmare. Some fall to fear and flock to safety. Others hold on and ride the wave. And others wait for buying opportunities. Unfortunately, few investors have a deep understanding of the market, overall economy and what to do in various situations.

With that in mind, we’ve created a list of resources that can help with key retirement and investment decisions during uncertain times. Share these with your employees, family, friends and community -- we’ll keep them updated.
