Well, it’s been quite a ride these last few years…..the pandemic, supply chain issues, inflation, an
inexplicable invasion and full-scale war between Russia & Ukraine, interest rate hikes, and now the pending election. Part of the IFW philosophy is to be prepared for the unexpected when it comes to market volatility.
We teach about an important concept known as the volatility buffer, a strategy to protect your portfolio from the effects of market volatility. It’s been such a long bull run that we have generally been
referring to times of the past like 2008 and 2020.
What is a Volatility Buffer?
A volatility buffer is something that is not correlated to the market so it CAN’T and WON’T go down. Some examples are products as simple as a money market, savings account, or cash-value life insurance.
The IFW has helped thousands of people nationwide sleep better during volatile markets. Why? Simply because they have implemented a Volatility Buffer into their long-term retirement plan.
We never know when the market will go up or go down. But, one thing we can be sure of is that markets will go up and down. That’s why it’s critical to consider having a volatility buffer strategy in place for the future.
