6 Important Questions to Ask About Your Financial Plan During the COVID-19 Crisis
The market of early 2020 and the market of today look very different. As a result of COVID-19’s impact, the S&P 500 declined 20% in the first quarter of the year—its biggest loss since the Great Recession (2008). Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 23% in that same period—its largest slide since Black Monday (1987).
Seeing this volatility makes many investors feel the need to take action. While the best plan is to follow the financial plan you already have in place (which should have been created with a downturn like this in mind), there are some thoughtful questions you can ask to help strengthen your finances during this trying time.
