Keeping Your Money Safe
From 1999-2008 the S&P 500 stock index was negative. In 2008 alone, the stock market was down over 30%. If you were in stocks, mutual funds, and bonds, you got hammered. However, if you go to a stock broker or typical money manager, they don’t have much else to recommend. There are other investment tools available to advisors who do the research to find them. Wouldn’t you have rather been in an investment that has approximately 70% less risk than the S&P 500 with gains that over time have been significantly better than the index (and one that was only down 4% when the market was down over 30% in 2008). These types of investments are out there but most advisors don’t do the research to find them.
