Stocks and bonds during the first half of the year?

Kerplunk. Scientifically speaking, of course.

That’s where balancing could come in handy, according to morningstar.com. Investors who abided by strategy dictated by discipline wouldn’t have taken as big a hit, according to morningstar.com.

Of course, rebalancing doesn’t come with any guarantees when it comes to generating an improvements on returns, results this year show why maintaining a tight rein on risk isn’t such a bad idea.

As an investor, whether you’ve been around the block a few times or are wet behind the ears, your priorities probably vary widely, according to smartasset.com.

Thinking about building a portfolio from scratch? Well, you might want to try this instead: you’ll be assigned a pre built model portfolio by many advisors.

Also consider that most investment advisors keep close tabs on and review their model portfolios to make sure they’re achieving their benchmarks and doing their thing at level that are proper. But that doesn’t happen at the snap of a snap of the fingers; instead the process entails rebalancing each portfolio, which your ability to maintain the asset allocation that was designated.

Fretting over salting away enough cash for retirement against the backdrop of the helter skelter ride, courtesy of the stock market?

Yeah, it’s a thing.

In the dawning days of September, the S&P 500 index of stocks saw almost 24% fly out the window, according to Sandy Wiggins, of ACG Wealth Management in Midlothian, appearing on wtvr.com. Bonds, what’s more, typically, regarded as a safer option than stocks, also hit the skids. Through that month, Bloomberg US Aggregate – the main bond index – kissed away 14.6%.

“It’s a scary time for investors, especially those who have retired or are planning to in the next few years,” Wiggins said, reported wtlocal.com. “However, the key to successful long-term investing is to keep fear from making decisions in such difficult times. Investor psychology is such that greed in good times and fear in bad lead to overreaction and bad decisions.

“First, realize that timing the market is a losing strategy,” Wiggins continued. “By timing the market, we mean moving from stocks to cash or something else conservative with the expectation of going back when things feel better. The best demonstration of the folly of market timing is to examine the impact on returns by staying invested and missing the best return days.”

Following two years online, October 28-30, the Esports and Gaming Summit took place again onsite. Organized by Gariath Concepts, the event’s renowned as the largest Gaming Convention in Southeast Asia. “At Globe, we are very happy and excited to be part of ESGS this year. In line with our Game Well Played campaign, we have activities in our booth and throughout the entire ESGS event area that promotes multiple products, experiences, and most of all, opportunities to do good,” said Rina Azcuña-Siongco, head of Globe’s Get Entertained Tribe, during a press conference ahead of the summit.

Yet, all might not be peaches and cream on the ESG front. In recent posts, Kevin LaCroix, an attorney and executive vice president, RT ProExec, indicated ESG has a fundamental flaw: it’s void of definition, leading to what he characterized as “sloppy thinking,” according to dandodiary.com.

These ESG related trepidations are explored in a recent post on the Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance. Leveraging cybersecurity as an example, Douglas Chia of Soundboard Governance LLC, illustrates one of the “biggest flaws” of ESG is “the subjective open-endedness of what counts as E, S, or G.”
