Is everything broken?

Record inflation, aggressive rate hikes and a gloomy financial forecast for 2023 – not much seems to be going right in today’s economic climate. So what effect do these financial headwinds have on our own “personal economies”? This week on Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, Soledad, Jean and wealth planner Isabel Barrow will be talking about why you should consider sticking with a diversified portfolio through unsettling times. Later in the episode, with midterms around the corner and the markets weighing heavily on our minds, investors may be wondering if they should be adjusting their portfolios to prepare for election results. The hosts discuss the historical impacts of the elections on the markets and what to do and not do to help protect your wealth.

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.  That compensation is a fixed sum paid on an annual basis; and reimbursement for certain expenses.  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).

An index is a portfolio of specific securities (such as the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq composite), 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.
