RSG Advisory Investment Update–Mid Year 2022 Outlook & Strategy

At RSG, our core job is to help participants get through the noise and emotions and make informed and strategic retirement planning decisions.

This summer, 2022 continues with challenging market conditions with enormous volatility and losses across the board. That said, the market is replete with once-in-a-lifetime events, which eventually become history. The markets today have likely already priced-in a lot of the news that is anticipated in the coming 6 months. Equity markets, for example, seem to have priced-in the probability of a recession, inflation continues, further interest rate hikes expected, and certainly continued volatility.

Watch the webinar to learn:
• What history has taught us and how we can apply this knowledge to current market conditions.
• What a recession means to my 401(k) account investments.
• Changes you can make now and going forward.

Fiduciary Soup

For years most plan sponsors were unaware that they had a fiduciary duty to oversee a qualified retirement plan. The thought was, we are offering people a benefit, shouldn’t that be enough.

So someone has to be that Plan watchdog and apply the “best interest” rule which sets the fiduciary standard.
