Life changes over time and, yes, so do financial markets. Towards the end of the 18-year bull run that began in 1982, many investors anticipated the next economic downturn. We reassured ourselves that we had our clients covered. After all, we had applied the latest and best thinking relative to diversifying client portfolios through stocks, bonds and REITs.
In March 2000, financial markets began to change. The tech bubble burst kicking-off a 52% decline in the S&P 500. This began a painful three-year recession during which the value of stocks, as well as real estate, were severely damaged.
So were our client’s well-diversified portfolios. We saw first-hand, the financial and emotional devastation, the changing and halting of plans and dreams, and, finally, ultimate acceptance--as though this sort of investor experience was just an unavoidable part of growing a portfolio. After all, this sort of thinking was and still is, taught by business schools and financial advisors everywhere, including, at the time, ourselves.
