Your Financial Plan and a Volatile Market

It never hurts to be financially prepared for all types of market and economic conditions.

In fact, that’s how we build plans at Truepoint; to weather a variety of turbulences. During times of tumult, you may find yourself feeling anxious about or preoccupied with the unknown. Perhaps you’ve found yourself asking questions like these:

  • How will the most severe inflation outbreak in 40 years be resolved?
  • Should I invest in commodities to hedge against inflation or even cryptocurrency?
  • What does the shift in the world’s geopolitical order mean for the stock market and my portfolio?
  • How do I protect my investments when every aspect of the market is under pressure?
  • Will this moment in time completely displace my plans for the future?

We hear these concerns from our clients every day. Rather than worrying about the unknowable (and the uncontrollable), we encourage our clients to instead focus attention on what can be controlled—from conscientious saving to thoughtful emotional mediation.
