Update on current events, economic outcomes, and market impacts
The Russian invasion of Ukraine and associated stock market volatility has many investors worried. While it may be difficult to remain calm during market turbulence, it is important to remember that volatility is a normal part of investing, and brief periods of heightened volatility often recede quickly after the beginning of crises or even wars. For long-term investors, reacting emotionally to volatile markets may be more detrimental to portfolio performance than the drawdown itself.
In these videos, Versant Capital Management CIO Tom Connelly discusses:
- The geographic areas in dispute
- Perspectives on the Russia-Ukraine conflict
- Economies and commodities affected by the invasion and sanctions
- Possible impacts on investments and historical perspective
- Possible economic outcomes and US market recovery
- Our thoughts going forward
