Low Risk, Low Volatility Investing
Two questions can help you put investing and retirement into perspective. These questions may help you establish the appropriate risk tolerance going forward.
First Question: How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50% gain in your investment portfolio?
Many respond by saying that they might spend or travel a little more or just feel more secure.
Nothing would dramatically change.
Second Question: How would your lifestyle change if you had a 30 to 50% loss in your investment portfolio?
Many respond by saying that they would be devastated or have to move to a smaller home or drop a club membership or some other dramatic change.
The loss potentially has a more dramatic affect in their mindset and lifestyle.
This is the primary reason why many Americans are far more concerned with protecting what they have accumulated rather than chasing risky investments.
Are you prepared for the possibility of a major market sell off?
