Below is a chart showing what you always wish someone would talk to you about, but very few actually understand.

Defense Strategy

Below is a chart that represents the power of losses.  Most traditional investors and advisors participate in what is commonly referred to as passive investing or “buying and holding”.  This is the idea of holding an asset and hoping that it appreciates, but unfortunately, usually this mentality of investing has high volatility high risk.

In this illustration, we wanted to show the power of losses.  The first chart shows a hypothetical market scenario that we are all too familiar with.  Given a market correction, the passive investing would move down and then up similar to the given market.

In the second chart, we see an account that has a downside strategy.  The market is the same but this illustration assumes that the investment can move defensively on the downside.  We also assumed that the second chart wouldn’t increase as quickly on the rebound.

Based on the illustration, we can see that the first chart doesn’t have a return of basis until the third year.  The second chart shows a return of basis in the first year of recovery.  Many investors don’t consider “time” an asset class, but with compounding interest “time” is paramount in the success of a portfolio.

Ask yourself what your experience has been in downward markets.  With volatility increasing, it seems that downward cycles are becoming more normal.
