Happy October! If it weren’t for the pumpkin spice lattes I wouldn’t believe it myself. As we find ourselves treading in waters of historical market highs and approaching the end of the year, now is the perfect time to take inventory of your investment strategies.
Since I’m in my 30s, people don’t always realize that I’ve actually had first-hand experience with our last two market crashes. First, as a young investor during the dot.com bubble. Second, as an advisor during the 2008 financial crisis. I remember September 15th of 2008 when Bank of America bought out Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. It felt like the world around me had changed in a day. I learned a lot from our last recession including a few things that may help when taking inventory of your portfolio.
