How bad is it REALLY out there?

There’s a lot of hype in the news about 2023 and the economic turmoil we may be facing. However, another way to think about it is that we actually may be on the path to normalization. This week on Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, Jean, Soledad, and wealth planner John McCafferty will discuss the economic forces that are impacting all of us right now, and shed some light on why it may not be as ominous as we think. Later in the episode, Christopher Jones, chief investment officer for Edelman Financial Engines, joins the hosts to discuss how EFE factors in market swings when constructing its portfolios – which can help clients through these periods of uncertainty.

Ms. Chatzky and Ms. O’Brien receive cash compensation for acting as hosts of the Everyday Wealth radio show and podcast and for related activities and therefore have an incentive to endorse Edelman Financial Engines and its planners.

The amount paid each year does not vary, is not based on show content or any results-dependent factors (e.g., popularity of the show).

Dollar Cost Averaging does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. For the strategy to be effective, you must continue to purchase shares in both up and down markets. As such, an investor needs to consider his/her financial ability to continuously invest through periods of low price levels.

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.
