Economy, Markets, and Investment Strategy

Susan Jung |

I trust all of you are keeping safe and staying at home. Your health is so important, and we are hoping and praying that you are doing well in this challenging time.
This week’s video update focuses exclusively on investment strategy, markets, and the economy. I wanted to answer a few questions that I have received and share more detail on our investment thinking in this challenging environment.
The questions I will be answering are as follows:

  • You seem logical and calm; how do you keep emotions out of your decision process?
  • How bad is the economic downturn going to be? 
  • How far can the market drop from here?
  • Should I sell now and go to cash? Or should I invest more cash?
  • What shape will the economic recovery look like? V? U? L?
  • What shape will the market recovery look like? V? U? L?
  • What industry sectors will be the winners and the losers?
  • How long will it take for equites to get back to the market highs?
  • What will the signs be that we have started to bounce back from this economic crisis?
  • How will you invest during this crisis? Any changes?
  • When do you think that the world will get back to normal? What will be the signs?
