Second Opinion Services
Are you confident in your current investment plan? Maybe just a few nagging worries? As we all know, investing is not an exact science, and anyone can simply “get it wrong”, even the experts. In fact, so many variables go into sound investment decisions that sometimes a new set of eyes and a different perspective can be very helpful. Would a new outlook give you some additional peace of mind? Sometimes it helps to have an objective party take a look at how your investments are positioned.
Another common human behavior we can fall prey to is complacency. A well-constructed investment portfolio rarely needs a major overhaul. But there are numerous factors and assumptions that will affect the results you will achieve, such as time, risk, available investment choices, tax efficiency, and current valuations.
Therefore, one of the most important attributes for your portfolio in today’s investment environment is flexibility. A flexible portfolio is one that is pliable. It can bend, adjust, and adapt to the considerable market pressures and forces that confront it. Putting your portfolio on auto pilot is not necessarily the best choice. Changes may be needed, from small “tweaks”, to more significant adjustments.
How do you know when and how to be flexible and adapt?
