Your April investment statements were ugly, maybe even shocking. You know that you shouldn’t react in irrational fear, but if your retirement is closing in, reality sinks in. You can’t hop in a time machine and redo the past but what should you do after the damage is done?
Back to your investment statements; skip past the value section and look at the activity section of your investment statements. Did you or your advisor take any positive steps to adjust or re-balance your investments last month? With the size and speed of price declines, you had opportunities to proactively improve your portfolio. Both bond and stock market sectors diverged which created opportunities to position your investments for future growth. If the activity section of your statements doesn’t reflect action to improve your portfolio then it may be time to re-examine your approach.
