The Down Market Myth: Is Everybody Losing Money When the Market Goes Down?

Many investors have been led to believe that the effects of market swings are inescapable and that everyone must be losing money in a down market. But are they really? What about those individuals who are not just invested in the market, who have investments through insurance providers or alternative investments that may not be correlated with traditional bond and stock markets? There are many strategic investments that are not directly tied to overall stock market trends and these can help insulate portfolios from the dramatic swings that have become even more common in today’s market environment.

At Doffin Investments, we believe that your finances and your future shouldn’t be at the mercy of a volatile market. That’s why we incorporate low-correlated assets, which provide returns that move independently of market conditions. For example, the return on a non-traded REIT is impacted by very different factors than the returns on a developmental energy program. All non-traded investments, including real estate, leasing, and energy programs, are low-correlated to each other or the stock market and thus add stability to your portfolio, while counter-balancing the risk of traditional asset classes.

The truth is, you have options. Contact us today to learn more about how you can potentially incorporate alternative strategies into your investment portfolio.
