After a good long run with the bulls, mounting evidence shows that the U.S.
stock market is treading on bear territory. How should investors prepare?
When the market delivers positive returns, it is easy for investors to start thinking the good times will never end. But even during these uptrends, investors should be thinking long-term about how their portfolios are prepared to perform during the next type of market, because it will strike – often with little warning.
This white paper outlines the steps to building a responsive portfolio that’s prepared for a variety of market scenarios – good and bad. We believe a bear market is coming sooner rather than later, so there’s no better time than now for investors to construct a portfolio that’s flexible enough to potentially capitalize on a market downturn yet quickly participate when the market rebounds once again.
