This week we invited Brian Swann, Regional Vice President at Pacific Life Insurance Company and Pacific Funds, to join us on the call. Daryl and Brian exchanged their prognostications for early 2017 and the immediate impacts of a surprise election and surprise cabinet appointments. We're looking at which sectors will benefit from a President Trump, and which sectors will be harmed. We repeat this often because it's important: we are not traders, we are investors. While there are sometimes opportunities to take advantage of short-term market volatility, we more often like to look toward the future and inform our long-term strategies with what's happening today.
Other highlights of this call include an interesting fact from Clint about the length of this bull market compared to other historical bulls. Finally, Daryl introduces an idea for insuring portfolios against dramatic pull backs.
