Bear Markets & Client Expectations
Various factors, including increasing volatility, a softening housing market, risks of a trade war, and the sheer length of this nearly decade-long bull market, suggest a major correction or recession could be near.
Setting expectations now will help shepherd clients through the next market downturn. With the right strategy and mindset, financial advisors can use market downturns to their advantage, strengthening their clients’ trust in them.
However, it takes two consecutive quarters of negative growth to confirm that the economy is in a recession. By the time we know we’re in one, it’s probably too late to do much about it, in terms of portfolio positioning. That’s why it is essential to prepare in advance.
