The AAII Columbus Chapter presents...

"How to Avoid Bear Markets and Catch a Bull"

    Discussed by:

    Ian Abbott

    Owner, Abacus Financial Services

Ian Abbott will explain how so many investors lost a significant part of their retirement savings when the market dropped 40% in 2008. He will argue that the problem was not “contained” or “unforeseen.” Looking back to the 1930s, he will argue that what happened then was not a single event but rather a chain reaction of crashes and mini-crashes that extended for more than a decade. Are we at the precipice now, standing at the brink of another collapse? Can you afford to watch the market disintegrate without a plan to help protect your assets from such events?
