We are impressed with the discipline nearly every single client has exercised during this market correction. At times like these, it's valuable to review past bear markets to build confidence and avoid costly mistakes.
Though every stock market downturn has handsomely rewarded patient investors, each bear market has different catalysts, making it feel like uncharted territory, invoking the questions "Is it different this time? Will the market recover this time?"
Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA), one of our investment partners, has produced this presentation that looks at past bear markets, comparing them to our current situation, and reviewing what we've learned from those experiences. DFA is a mutual fund company renowned for its discipline, analytical research, low cost and investment results.
