Take the stress out of your financial choices
Perhaps the most difficult decisions in retirement plan participation are deciding what to invest in and how to avoid the possibility of losing money in the market. You can never completely get rid of investment risk, but you can use some techniques that tend to reduce risk over time. Most Kentucky Deferred Comp participants are long-term investors, meaning time is on your side.
Spread your assets around
One commonly used technique to reduce investment risk is diversification. Because most asset classes do not gain or lose value at the same time or at the same pace, diversification allows you to spread your investments around with a goal of reducing the impact of market losses to your portfolio over time. The challenge is that the investor needs to understand the investment objectives of not only the asset classes but also the funds in them.
If you’re not comfortable making asset allocation decisions, or you want decisions to be made for you on an ongoing basis, Kentucky Deferred Comp offers a solution.
