Dealing with volatility

Market volatility and risk are two different concepts. At best, embrace the volatility. At worst, ignore it. If you can’t do either, we can help you. The only certainty is uncertainty. Surprise is the mother of all panic. The antidote is rational behavior. Fear is not a strategy. Once a wealth plan is crafted, agreed upon and implemented, the essence of what we do is to suppress one's natural tendency to panic.

The world only seems to be ending (thanks to financial journalism). The most fascinating aspect of all crises (financial or otherwise) is their essential sameness. This time is never different.

It’s okay to feel fear, but it’s not okay to act upon it. Hear us when we say, “Don’t just do something, stand there!” “This too shall pass” “Stay the course” or “Don’t do that!” Optimism is the only realism. Optimism squares with the facts and historical record, pessimism does not. There is nothing to fear, but fear itself.
