- Playing defense when the market is tumultuous
- Balancing your portfolio in line with your risk tolerance
- Achieving your retirement goals with a well diversified portfolio
Hi folks. Dave Piatkowski here. I am still ecstatic about that Super Bowl win by my beloved Denver Broncos! I am a lifelong Denver Broncos fan, and I couldn’t make this video until now simply because I had lost my voice. I was so ecstatic yelling at the TV.
That was so fun and exciting! I couldn’t understand how other people didn’t think so and then I thought, well, if I look back, a defensive game which the Denver Broncos had, is a little bit boring to watch compared to a high-flying, high-scoring, high-yardage game. I would have been happy with a two-nothing win by the Broncos with a safety. But I can understand that with defense winning championships, it’s not always fun for the average fan to watch if it’s not your team.
Here at Dickinson Investment Advisors, we realize that in some situations, we feel the same way about investment accounts. We are playing defense in the investment accounts this year because the markets are in turmoil right now – both in 2015 and early 2016. So what we have found in football, defensive games win championships; it’s the same thing here. Playing defense when the market is tumultuous also gets us to the Promised Land for your retirement goals, and in this case, we do that for you through a well-diversified portfolio.
It’s not sexy. It’s not exciting. It may not be not fun to watch the statements. But when you keep a well-diversified portfolio and the right balance for your risk tolerance over the long haul, you too can win a championship through us playing defense. That’s what we hope to do through doing this for you.
