Can Investors Win More by Losing Less?
Watch Shawn Hirsch explain how we manage risk and help keep clients on track to achieve their goals. Too many investors only focus on returns. Seeking to avoid significant declines is also important.
Bond yields may be low, but owning bonds is still an important component of a well-designed investment plan.
There are 3 good reasons to invest in bonds as part of a diversified portfolio:
- Ease stock market risk
- Income generation
- Capital preservation

Returns during recent stock corrections show the value of investment grade bonds to help mitigate stock market risk.
