The Truth About the Coronavirus and Your Finances

February 27, 2020

What a crazy week! The uncertainty created by the coronavirus has obviously impacted the markets. In all of the panic, we wanted to help you cut through the noise. There is a big difference in the way you should prepare your family from a health perspective versus reacting from a financial perspective for any impact the virus may have.

Fortunately, if you already utilize diversified portfolios, you can weather any short-term pain! We are not the only voices that consider this a short-term event. The IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath stated, “There is a scenario where all the hit takes place in the first quarter, and by April, like a V-shape, China is back to normal.”  This V-shape recovery is exactly why we do not try to time the markets. As we explain in this video, there are quite a few similarities to the outbreak of SARS in 2003, and, if history is likely to repeat itself, the recovery will be just as fast (or faster) than the downturn.

Please feel free to share this with friends, family, and anyone that you feel may benefit from our insights. We hope this helps!
