The Crystal Ball: Is it possible to predict the future using historic returns?
While no one has a crystal ball to predict where the market will be next year or the year after, can an investor rely on history to set expectations? The answer is yes. Julie Jason will provide attendees with a smart plan of action, so they can be prepared for all types of markets, both good and bad.
Julie Jason, author of Managing Retirement Wealth: An Expert Guide to Personal Portfolio Management in Good Times and Bad and The AARP Retirement Survival Guide: How to Make Smart Financial Decisions in Good Times and Bad, has examined the markets since the 1930s and shares observations that investors can put into action for themselves. By examining the worst historical periods – and their aftermath - investors can gain confidence to ride through downturns with fewer mistakes.
Julie Jason, JD, LLM, is the author of six books including her latest, Managing Retirement Wealth: An Expert Guide to Personal Portfolio Management in Good Times and Bad, which won the 2012 EIFLE Award (Excellence in Financial Literacy Education), 2012 Axiom Business Book Award, and The National Best Books Award for Personal Finance. Julie’s award-winning weekly newspaper column is in its 16th year of publication and appears in 4 CT newspapers and is syndicated nationally by King Features.
