Economic & Market Review 


Martin Landry, CFA, CFP®, CAIA, CIMA®, CTFA, CIPM, AIF®
Director, Portfolio Management Group - Avantax Wealth Management


The "U-word". Sprinkled into every newscast, article, and conversation since the discovery of COVID-19, we have to wonder just how much of what we've seen has truly been "Unprecedented." While every market movement is unique in its own way, how might we analyze the past to help direct and, often even more so, comfort our clients through these trying times? Martin would like to share with you a snapshot of this first quarter of 2020, but in a historical context, sharing plenty of bullet points that you can take back to your end client. He'll reiterate some of what we already know, but which we can always use to be reminded of in dire times, and with example after example for you to choose those with which you're most comfortable relating to each of your personalized plans. The resilience of the U.S. stock market, the difficulty of market timing, and side-by-sides to help you visualize the different asset classes in their past and current states. You will get to experience a deep dive into data compiled by our friends at Russell Investments, with color commentary from our own Martin Landry. All of this will be shared in the context of how to encourage your financial planning clients to continue to stay-the-course as needed, reviewing and renewing your ability to add value to their financial picture. You may have had to protect your clients from external pressure to sell out of their well diversified portfolio at the end of March, and Martin will share his insights on today and beyond so that you can continue to guide your clients through the fear and temptation represented by today's volatility. In fact, he'll show you how your dedication to leading with a plan and putting your clients' best interests first have set you apart from the crowd more so now than ever.
