With the 2020 election just around the corner, many people may be wondering how the stock market might react and if they should be reviewing their investments leading up to November 3. Understanding that, WorthPointe advisor John Chapman dedicated a recent podcast to this topic—and his interview of WorthPointe CEO Christopher Van Slyke provides some helpful perspective on how to be invested in what feels like a volatile market. 

During the episode, Christopher and John talk about:

  • How much of the market performance is affected by the outcome of the presidential race
  • What history tells us about how the market has performed for various presidents and their parties, even though past-performance is no guarantee of future performance
