Following a decade-plus of generally rising markets, a meaningful downturn in stocks has unfortunately arrived. We don’t know how bad it will be or how long it will last. We do know that without advice, investors will make costly mistakes. We’ve seen 13 corrections and 8 bear markets in global equities in the last 40 years. That’s about one every other year…So hang in there. This too shall pass.
