On this episode of Intelligent Money Minute, we interview Matt Hougan, Chairman of Inside ETFs on sticking to the plan in the midst of fear. Despite being the founder of ETFs.com, Matt isn’t unlike other investors in regards to portfolio concerns. Matt says it himself that he worries about the same things that a lot of people worry about. During this episode, he mentions the 4o year-long bond bull market and equity evaluations as personal concerns. Despite these concerns, Matt stresses the importance of sticking to a long-term investment strategy in the midst of fear. One thing will remain, the potential that humans will misbehave. That’s why it’s critical to not be fearful or greedy in finance.
When we meet with prospective clients, one of the first steps we take is to have prospects take a state-of-the-art risk questionnaire. Our approach uses a Risk Number built upon a Nobel Prize-winning framework, and every client receives a unique risk number. The risk number is a way to understand your willingness to take on risk. We also will discuss your ability to take on risk, your need for risk, and explore what your current portfolio risk is. We’d be happy to setup a complimentary call or meeting.
