Advisors need to help retirees and other investors limit downside risk and grow their wealth. We at Sierra share this goal, and in this webinar we will provide perspective on the challenges facing financial advisors. We will discuss how to build a well-diversified fixed income allocation that seeks to deliver the benefits of bonds, while mitigating against rising rates, defaults, bond market illiquidity and stock market volatility. We will also introduce a truly tactical, rules-based investment approach with the goals of limiting downside risk and producing returns that a conservative investor would deem satisfying. We will review:

  1. The Emotional Challenge – Stocks vs. Bonds
  2. Seven years of “yield fixation”
  3. The risks in fixed income allocations through three lenses:
    1. Interest rate risk
    2. Bond funds that don’t act like bond funds
    3. Does shortening duration help mitigate risk?
