Financial Markets Perspective and Relief Programs

The history of the financial markets can tell us one thing for certain: Volatility is a normal part of investing. We’re here to help you understand what that means and what you can do to stay on track for retirement. Explore the resources below to get started.

A few reminders:

  • Consider staying invested instead of trying to time the market.
  • Keeping portfolios diversified can help soften negative impacts.
  • Before making investment changes, consider your risk tolerance and how long before you retire and need access to the funds.

Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.
