July 31 event at the Calvin College Prince Conference Center

The word risk is frequently used in the investing world but not well understood. Most investors FEEL the risk in their portfolio but don’t understand how risk applies to them.  

Risk is not all bad though. There are at least 8 forms of risk that need to be managed as part of an investment/retirement planning strategy. These can be understood and then harnessed by the informed and well-coached investor. It need not be complicated and knowing simple truth about how markets work can give amazing peace of mind relative to risk.

Consider the following:

-During the early 2000 Tech bubble, the average investor lost money in the markets that they never recovered. Losses were primarily due to investor behavior, not market behavior!

-Over the past decade an average of 85% of mutual fund managers did not beat their market benchmarks.  

-Many investors have not returned to the stock markets due to the losses that they experienced in 2008 and 2009.  

However, the reality is:

-The markets are at or above their record highs from 2007.

-From 1999 until today, a well diversified growth mutual fund has returned to the informed, disciplined and prudent investor a total return that would have more than doubled money invested for that time period.   

A lack of good coaching and understanding of RISK is the reason that the average investor’s experience is so disappointing relative to the returns of the market. Every decade during the past century has seen similar story play out. Greed and fear drive activity, not the sound principles based on how free markets work for investors.
