Politics and Portfolios: What You Can Do With Your Investments During This Election Season

Don’t play politics with your portfolio. Many investors make judgements and investment decisions based on who might be president or which political party is leading in Congress rather than fundamental investing principles. The truth is, although government policies can influence the economy and financial markets, it is extremely difficult to predict the future performance of an investment or the financial markets based on a political party, a president, social divisiveness, or any other type of indicator you choose to focus on.

Stay Calm and Rebalance

Stay Calm and Rebalance

Rebalancing is the process of periodically buying or selling assets within an investment portfolio to maintain your original or desired level of risk and reward.

Rebalancing offers investors the opportunity to buy low and sell high, taking the gains from high-performing investments within a portfolio and reinvesting them in assets that will potentially see growth. As financial markets move up or down, your original asset mix may go off target, causing your portfolio to carry more or less risk. 

Watch this video to learn why rebalancing is essential to prudent long-term investing and risk control.
