The Markets and your 401(k) Plan

Guest: Jeff Judd







Jeff and I had a conversation in early February 2016 about steps employers should take to evaluate their retirement plans during times of market volatility.  Highlights include: 

  • Review of the market volatility in 2015 and thus far in early 2016. 

  • Market trends to be aware of in 2016

  • Tips for evaluating perform vs. risk in your 401(k) plan investments.

  • What to expect with your bond mutual funds during a time of rising interest rates

  • Market volatility can either highlight strengths or expose weakness in your mutual fund managers. 

  • Important questions to help you evaluate the risk profile of both your core plan investments and target date strategy.
