Our Investment Strategy for the Upcoming Election

Sep 11, 2020COVID-19

As we approach the upcoming Presidential election, we want to share with you our view on how best to navigate the investment markets.   As you know, we do not attempt to predict the future, but rather focus on information and fundamentals. Making significant asset allocation changes based on short-term election cycle volatility can be detrimental to long-term investment returns, and market timing is rarely a winning strategy.

Our partners at Capital Group prepared a summary analyzing investor and market behavior during and after an election year.  As you will see, the political party who controls the White House has minimal impact on the investment markets over the long term, which is why we are not planning on making any significant changes to your portfolio, such as raising excess cash. We hope you find this informative, timely, and helpful.

As always, we are here to answer your questions or have discussions with you to ensure your portfolios are aligned with your individual goals and objectives.

We hope that you stay healthy and safe.
