Baird Update on Financial Market Volatility

Investment Strategists Offer Timely Insight


On Thursday, January 21, Baird held a live conference call with investors to offer timely insight into recent market volatility. Our Chief Investment Strategist Bruce Bittles and Investment Strategist Willie Delwiche addressed common concerns including the causes behind this volatility, how long it could last and its potential impact on the financial markets.

They shared valuable perspective and information on this call, and left us with a key takeaway: although the recent declines seem to stem from justified global market and economic uncertainty – there is not enough evidence at present to suggest that the current correction will lead to a bear market or a recession. They also stressed that while asset allocation is always important, it becomes even more relevant in the current volatile environment.

Listen to the call.
