Vanguard Weighs In

Vanguard provides an explanation of market corrections, bear markets, and the extent and impact we have experienced in the last 35 years. Corrections and setbacks are common and as Vanguard reminds us, “the stock market’s occasional-and occasionally severe-setbacks were the price investors paid to realize long-term returns superior to those of the lower-risk assets.”

Soundmark Wealth Management continues to focus on a financial planning approach that takes into account periodic market declines within one’s portfolio allocation. Like Vanguard, we believe maintaining a diversified portfolio can help weather the volatility the market may bring.
