Many investors find themselves in hot water during equity market corrections and bear markets because of their failure to manage risk appropriately. Investing should be about managing risk first and chasing return second. Some investors are even endangering their standard of living, especially in retirement, by not creating a safety net in their investment portfolios. One of the best ways of creating a portfolio safety net is an allocation to fixed income. In this presentation, Bob Pugh will explore how to use fixed income effectively as a key tool to manage portfolio risk.
Attend this meeting and learn
- How to assess your risk tolerance and determine an appropriate allocation to fixed income in your portfolio
- Alternative ways of managing risk in your portfolio
- How to structure the fixed-income allocation in your portfolio using individual bonds and ETFs
