Navigating Uncertainty with Confidence

Thursday, June 9, 2022 | 2:40pm - 3:40 pm


In today’s digital age we are bombarded with messages containing confident predictions about what will happen to the economy and the markets. This can lead to many behavioral biases which are hazardous to our investment
recommendations. A study of market history tells us the only certainty is the future will not work out like most experts predict. As financial advisors it’s important to remove our own biases. One of the best ways to do this is by following a rules based approach. This presentation will discuss some of the obstacles the markets are facing in the years ahead, some possible investment rules you can apply to your portfolios, and a way to create a truly diversified investment portfolio for your clients designed to overcome uncertainty.
