Ever since we founded Independence Advisors, we have been committed to serving as an independent voice. We are proud to question the status quo whenever that’s what it takes to serve our clients’ best financial interests.
That said, we’ve also long enjoyed collaborating with anyone whose wealth management missions complement our own. The more often we can join with others to speak in a unified voice about investors’ highest interests, the more effectively we can drown out the many misguided messages that otherwise distract families from their optimal financial outcomes.
This is one reason we were excited to recently participate in a new video series created by our friends at Dimensional Fund Advisors. The series features yours truly, as well as a number of other like-minded wealth advisors from across the country. Together, we’ve taken on several common questions about how to navigate today’s challenging markets.
In the series’ first video, we explored a question that we heard especially often during the market’s bumpy beginning to 2016: Is now a good time to be in the market?
We hope you’ll take the two minutes and 39 seconds required to watch the video. But assuming your life’s goals warrant investing in the market to begin with, following is our spoiler summary: Yes, it’s a good time to be in the market. (Hint: It always is.)
