“Our clients were rewarded for staying invested in 2009 even though times were scary early in the year when the economic outlook seemed dismal,” said Dan Goldie, President of Dan Goldie Financial Services. “At a time when many other investors were selling equities, we worked hard to help our clients understand the potential benefits of maintaining a diversified, long-term investment strategy. I believe this benefited them not only last year, but also over the last decade or so of low returns for the broad U.S. stock market.”
Dan Goldie Financial Services manages balanced portfolios of equities and fixed income securities for individual investors. The highest returns for the firm’s clients in 2009 came from international equities, where the firm normally invests about 30-40% of a client’s equity allocation. U.S. investors holding international securities benefited from the falling value of the U.S. dollar, which added to the returns from local international markets.
Mr. Goldie said, “Recent times have been difficult for investors, but our experience is that those who remained disciplined and held diversified, multi-asset portfolios made it through better than most. We are pleased to have played a part in helping our clients navigate today’s difficult financial waters and to have seen a resumption of growth in assets under management.”
