No. 31 of 106 Things We Do For Clients

Guide you through difficult periods in the stock market by sharing historical perspective. Repeatedly, research shows that the greatest value of an investment advisor is helping clients keep their portfolios fully invested in times of market crisis. One way we do that is sharing historical perspectives that help calm the panic and restore clear thinking. For example: Did you know the average bull market lasts five times longer than a bear market? Or that the average bear market is over in 10 months and the average drop is 32%? Or that the average bull market finds stock prices increasing by 440%? How about that 22 of the last 23 bear markets bottomed in the first two years of a President’s term? Or that we average having a bear market every 3.5 years? In times of panic, we provide realistic perspective that can make a huge difference in your retirement cash flow.
