Understanding the challenges women investors face and how we help

Is Our Portfolio Structured As It Should Be For These Volatile Times?

With the recent market volatility, Tom and Linda felt a lot of emotional stress. For a number of years they had been with a financial advisor. Recently, though, they started to ask a lot of questions and weren't comfortable with some of the answers.

The questions just kept boiling up:

How do we know if our current advisor is really the best for us?

What is the right portfolio for us?

How can we avoid losing even more in the next downturn?

Are we positioned right when the economy and market really come back?

Where is our portfolio most risky?

Will our money last as long as we need it to?

Are our investments really aligned with our life goals?

Taking Advantage Of A Second Opinion

Financial health is like your physical health. If you take good care of it, you’re more likely to have a healthy future. Even when you get regular advice from an experienced professional, whether a doctor or financial advisor, you sometimes can benefit from a second opinion.

  • Revaluate their portfolio to see if they can still realistically pursue their financial goals,
  • Gain a better foundation from which they can feel empowered to take control and make more-informed decisions, and
  • Answer the tough "What If" questions that they have.
