Bombarded With Distressing Investment and Financial News?
How to focus on the golden goose and not media noise in 2023
After global stock, real estate, and bond market declines in 2022, and harrowing market losses in speculative technology stocks and crypto assets, how should we navigate distressing economic and market news coming from media outlets?
In the video, Tom Connelly, CFA, CFP, explains that regardless of underlying short-term news, markets are still more than capable of providing returns in the form of rents, interest, and dividend payments over the long run. The investment industry, academia, and government have had a poor track record in predicting important variables such as interest rates, inflation, and stock market returns in the short run. Should we not focus on longer-term fundamentals and not try to invest via short-term market or economic fluctuations and the emotions they elicit? Here, the news is good.
Tom Connelly, CFA, CFP, is the president and chief investment officer at Versant Capital Management. He describes his most significant professional accomplishment as “the growth and preservation of my clients’ financial nest eggs and legacies over lifetimes through one or more recession events.”
