For most people, 2022 has been a perfect storm of high inflation, aggressive rate hikes, volatile markets, worries of recession… and just about everything else that makes investors run for the hills. This week on Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, Soledad, Jean and wealth planner Andy Smith will put the markets into context, and – hopefully – provide a bit of perspective about what we’re experiencing right now in the economy. Later in the episode, the hosts discuss two types of investors – those who chase returns and those who work toward a clear set of goals, and why one typically leads to better outcomes. They’ll also explore what to do at different stages and phases of life to help protect your wealth.
This show is pre-recorded, and any callers are prescreened.
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 (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.
