[ Market Volatility ]
The gyrations of the stock market have made me very nervous. How should I deal with it?
There are two ways we approach these kinds of fears. First of all, we’ve been investing in the markets for a very long time, so no matter what kind of landscape we’re in, we can look back to an earlier period and say, “This is what happened then, and this is how things turned out, and this is what we learned from it.” That gives us a roadmap to dealing with the current situation.
And then there is the emotional aspect of it. By talking you through what’s happening, we can help alleviate your fears and make sure your decisions are being made for rational reasons, not emotional ones.
[ Retirement Planning ]
How will I know if I have enough money to retire on?
The time to address this question is long before you retire. We start thinking about your retirement plans while you’re still working, including estimating how much cash you’ll be spending, taking into account such things as home ownership and medical care.
Then, we structure your investments and income so that you are on the right track to meet those needs - decades before you will make use of that money.
[ Staying on Track ]
I’ve been working with a financial advisor but I’m not sure my plans will cover the retirement I hoped for. How can I be sure I’m on the right track?
We offer a complimentary second opinion on your existing financial plan, no matter who they’re from and with no commitment necessary. With her background in operations, Sarah Neff has a keen eye for reading financial statements and can cut through to exactly what they are conveying.
