Aaron Levitt Oct 15, 2020

It’s no secret that investors have a lot on their plates these days. From the continued coronavirus pandemic and slowing economic growth to the upcoming U.S. presidential election and geopolitical uncertainty, there’s simply a ton of issues facing portfolios these days. So it’s no wonder why we’ve seen huge swings in the market. It’s hard to predict an outcome. This can truly create a lot of sleepless nights, especially for investors relying on their portfolios for income or to get them through their retirement.
