Episode 31: The Power of Zero

Oct 7, 2022

Most Investment Advisors will tell you they concentrate on getting higher returns with lower risk, then only concentrate on getting higher returns and forget about the lower risk part. But what most advisors and the general public doesn’t understand, is how big of an impact risk plays in a portfolio’s return. Listen as Aaron discusses what they call the Power of Zero and how two portfolios with different average returns can net about the same dollar amount.

Here are just a handful of the things that we'll discuss:

  1. Knowing the average return of a portfolio doesn’t tell the whole story.
  2. You don’t have to have great returns to end up in a really good place.
  3. Bonds are the go-to safe haven for the stock market, but where do you go when bonds are down more than some stocks?
  4. How are you hedging your portfolio? How are you combining good return potential and risk hedging?
