Just because something doesn’t do what you planned, doesn’t mean it’s useless.

What to Know About Reviewing Your Investments
Perhaps you want to…
- reconsider the level of risk you are comfortable with for your portfolio and/or want to consider adjusting your asset allocation;
- make a contribution to, or a withdrawal from, an investment account;
- discuss the current market outlook, the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, or other economic trends.
Whatever the case may be, mid-year is a great time to review your portfolio to ensure your strategy aligns with your current needs and goals.
Careful investment planning is essential to long-term financial success, but it can often be complex. Investment performance is just one consideration when reviewing your portfolio. Factors such as diversification, taxation, and fees can have a dramatic impact on your portfolio during any economic climate.
To assist you in reviewing your investments, here is a checklist that outlines key considerations to guide your analysis.
Other Investment Review Considerations
As you review your investments, questions may come up. We’ve highlighted some of the most frequent questions we hear from our clients. Each question has an associated checklist which highlights key considerations.
- What issues should I consider regarding my non-qualified stock options, incentive stock options, or restricted stock units?
- What should I consider when harvesting capital losses?
- What issues should I consider when owning a rental property?
- What should I consider when reviewing my annuity?
- Should I contribute to my Roth 401(k)?
While checklists can help you identify different opportunities to consider, we are always available to discuss your financial goals and to help identify the best opportunities for you.
