MINT HILL, NC – Election Day is just a week away. Will your situation change as an investor after the votes are counted?
Maybe not. No matter who wins, the financial markets may show some politically driven volatility, but that often happens around elections, and it typically doesn’t last long.
Still, sometime in the future, we could see election-related changes that could affect your investment strategies, such as a new capital gains tax rate or policies that positively or negatively affect companies in which you may want to invest.
In any case, while it may be a good idea to watch for these developments, your main emphasis, in terms of your investment decisions, should remain on your goals and what you need to do to achieve them.
At least once a year, review your portfolio carefully to make sure your investments are aligned with your goals.
And, over time, your goals may change, too, so you may need to adjust your investment strategies accordingly.
So, no matter what happens in this election, or any other one, be sure to “vote” for the strategies that can provide you with a winning outcome.
