Great Questions Can Be The Basis for Great Answers!
7 Key Steps for 2022 Investment Plan Upgrades & How do I Adjust My Investment Plan for future Inflation?
1. Why is Investment Portfolio cash flow so important longer term? – For retirees, the ideal ratio is reinvestment of 20% of portfolio cash flow. This standard provides a framework for Allocation and Expense planning.
2. What is a “Tactical Safety” allocation and how can it be used effectively? – With slowing growth through 2022, tactical safety allows a plan to react to future corrections with a target list for great assets. Cash reserves help to avoid selling assets at unfortunate times.
3. Why should High Yield Global Lending be a permanent allocation for my Investment Portfolio? – Well managed portfolios of loans and bonds can provide opportunities for increased income and gain potential. In times of crisis, attractive discounts tend to emerge from fearful selling. Allocation planning can build in rebalancing additions. “Be the Bank!”
4. How do I prepare for future market corrections? – The study of prior market selloffs provides lessons for planning that can be likened to a fire drill where pre-planned actions increase the likelihood of success.
5. Why is excellent service so important for improving my Investment Performance? – A long-term plan executed by a well-managed and devoted team helps avoid service distractions. Excellent service is the basis for staying focused on opportunity because of the peace of mind created.
6. How can automated performance tracking improve my decision making? – The database record of actual overall performance provides guidance for future decisions in a more scientific process. Headlines and politics can often result in poor decisions driven by anxiety.
7. How can my goals and allocations be adjusted for current inflation forecasts including likely beneficiaries? – The world economies have moved from oversupply crisis to demand exceeding supply in many areas. Capital that provides solutions to these issues likely benefits with excess returns.
