In this 20 minute webinar, Foster Group's Chief Investment Officer, Kent Kramer, explains how the market has responded to the coronavirus outbreak and how investors should react to the recent market declines.
Foster Group's Chief Investment Officer, Kent Kramer, explains how to position both your investments and your thinking to better avoid predictable disappointments.
Investment markets around the world have been declining sharply this week in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
In addition to the coronavirus, other sources of investor uncertainty include global economic growth, the UK finalizing their Brexit negotiations, trade negotiations between Europe and the US, President Trump’s impeachment and ongoing Senate trial, and 2020 as an election year.
While the alterations may be small and subtle, they make a big difference when it comes to comfort and fit. Our experience is better. For an investment thought experiment, think of the “off the rack suit” as the broad market; we simply take what we get off the shelf with no alteration. Now think of Foster Group as the tailor and the alterations as portfolio personalizations called factor allocations.
