The Markets Have Been Wild. Are You Still On Track?

The Markets Have Been Wild. Are You Still On Track?

As investors, you are told to expect market turmoil from time to time and that your portfolio could take a hit. You are told to trust the process. 

While this can true, looking at the balance in your retirement accounts in times like these can inevitably cause some concern. Some questions might arise:

  • Is it normal to see this much volatility?
  • Will I still be able to retire on time?
  • Are there opportunities in a down market I could be taking advantage of?
  • How can I be proactive?

In times of market volatility, having an experienced financial advisor to help guide you through the rough waters is imperative. And yet, if you are managing your own investments or have an advisor who is not communicating regularly, it can feel like you are alone on the boat. 

We want to help. Here's what we offer:

A cup of coffee and a second opinion.

*Randy Morris was recognized as a 2022 Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisor: This ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person, virtual, and telephone due diligence meetings to measure best practices; also considered are: client retention, industry experience, credentials, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, such as: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Overall, 34,925 advisors were considered, and 6,585 (18.8 percent of candidates) were recognized.  This recognition and the due-diligence process conducted are not indicative of the advisor's future performance. Your experience may vary. Winners are organized and ranked by state. Some states may have more advisors than others. You are encouraged to conduct your own research to determine if the advisor is right for you. SHOOK does not receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
