PROTECT At Swan Wealth Management, we use several strategies to protect your accounts.a) Rebalancing- This is an important step that many people neglect when they try to manage their own investments. Rebalancing supports the philosophy of "buy low and sell high."b) Educate- We send out educational articles and are always here to answer questions so our clients can make wise choices.c) Diversification- A baseball team has different players with many different skills that are designed to compliment the entire team to find the winning formula. Your portfolio will hold different areas of the market that will perform differently during the various market cycles.d) Discipline- The average investor tends to buy and sell at the wrong time. According to a study, you will notice if you don't have a disciplined strategy you may underperform the market. Through planning and communication, we can help you stick to your investment strategy!Diversification and Asset Allocation Strategies do not assure a profit or protect against loss.
