Are we headed for a recession? (Rebroadcast from 6/4/22)

With all of the market volatility in recent weeks, along with inflation and interest rate increases, lots of people are wondering if we’re headed for a recession and how to protect their wealth. In this encore episode of Everyday Wealth™ from June 4, 2022, Jean and Soledad are joined by Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, to discuss how likely a recession is, and how to consider investing during a recession. Later in the episode, Jean and Soledad talk to John McCafferty, a wealth planner at Edelman Financial Engines, about whether preparing for a recession means moving investments to cash.

 

An index is a portfolio of specific securities (common examples are the S&P, DJIA, NASDAQ), the performance of which is often used as a benchmark in judging the relative performance of certain asset classes. Indexes are unmanaged portfolios and investors cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Investing strategies, such as asset allocation, diversification, or rebalancing do not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses. There are no guarantees that a portfolio employing these or any other strategy will outperform a portfolio that does not engage in such strategies. Funds and ETFs are subject to risk, including loss of principal. All investments have inherent risks. There can be no assurance that the investment strategy proposed will obtain its goal. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
