A message from Trevor Kearns, GBG’s Financial Health Specialist:

I can imagine everyone is watching their retirement portfolios during this COVID-19 disruption. The last few weeks have been incredibly rough for the markets and the pressure on world stock markets is compounded by the steep drop in the price of oil. At times like these, I find many clients discover their true risk tolerance. This is actually an ideal time to review your risk profile and consider whether you have the right investment mix. I would advise when making changes, to avoid the “knee-jerk reactions” like going to cash. At this point it’s important to stay invested and let the portfolio managers work their magic. While this sounds counter-intuitive, volatile market events like this also create incredible investment opportunities for the portfolio managers looking after our hard earned retirement savings.
  • Mortgage Calculator (Many of us have worked hard to pay down our mortgages and have equity to ease our worries. Please use the mortgage calculator exercise tool to help answer some questions you may have.)

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me – I’ll be happy to talk about the current state of the market and help with any suggestions or advice.
