Money Matters: Prepare for bear market with a plan

May 24, 2022


According to many analysts, a bear market seems increasingly likely. With inflation at heights not seen in decades, and central bankers raising interest rates rapidly in response, the recent selloffs may be causing a feeling of panic to set in as yet another instance of bad news to add to your worries.

But as any experienced hiker knows, panicking is the worst thing you can do if you meet a bear in the woods. The same is true when responding to a bear market. Although both are unexpected, having a plan on what to do in such eventualities and following it is the best way to ensure you won’t get mauled — physically or financially!

If you are worried about the market, contact Sally Lawson, Malvern’s Senior Investment Officer, at 610.695.3651 or email her at Start the conversation! Sally and her team can help you make wise decisions about your financial future – and reaching your long-term goals.

Here are some articles I found interesting that I think you might enjoy as well. Let me know what you think.
