How to invest with confidence in an election year


Presidential elections can be divisive and unsettling. At times, the fate of the world seems to hang in the balance. But when it comes to investing, do elections really matter all that much?

U.S. voters will have their say on November 3, but by maintaining a long-term focus, investors can position themselves for a brighter future regardless of the outcome at the voting booth. In fact, overreacting

In this guide, we address top advisor questions about investing in an election year, drawing insights from our analysis of over 85 years of investment data across 22 election cycles.
