Expert Retirement and Financial Advisor Mark Kinney Says Developing a Strong Defensive Investment Strategy Helps Minimize Risk

Seasoned retirement and financial strategist, Mark Kinney, discusses the importance of an active and defensive strategy when it comes to protecting your accumulated wealth in downward investment markets.

Lee, Massachusetts—May 4, 2016—Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney, CFP®, published a new article entitled, “Developing Your Defensive Investment Strategy.” In the article, he discusses what a defensive strategy entails and how to anticipate declining markets in order to effectively safeguard your wealth.

Mark writes, “Now, [market] predictions aren’t based on arbitrary timing or a ‘gut feeling’ about where the market’s headed. That sort of pseudo-scientific approach is a dangerous game to play. You may get lucky, but chances are you’ll end up with unnecessary losses. A conservative and defensive approach to investing recognizes that upward and downward trends tend to be prefigured by a set of very specific market conditions that signal these transitions. This is why, if you’re serious about your investments, it’s vital that you watch the markets daily. Just because market analytics have identified patterns in market trends does not mean these trends are perfectly timed. Markets are dynamic, contingent, and sometimes volatile. Keeping a close eye on your investments is imperative.”
