Managing Your Investments during a Financial Crisis!

Emotions can run high during market turbulence, just when reason should prevail. We believe active money management is one of the smartest ways to help investors grow and protect their wealth through the best and worst markets.

Over the past year, the global markets have taken all of us on a wild ride. Defined benefit, 401(k) and IRA plans collectively have lost $3.9 trillion of equity in the year ended October 9, 20081. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had 5 of the worst 10 days in its 112 year history since mid-September. Simply put, the world's financial system cracked as too much credit was provided to too many people who couldn't afford it. The S&P 500 Index (with dividends) posted the following LOSSES over the past two months and for the year:

S&P 500 Index (with dividends) September (8/31/08 – 9/30/08) -8.91%
October (9/30/08 – 10/31/08) -16.80%
2 Months 8/31/08 – 10/31/08 -24.21%
YTD 1/1/08 – 10/31/08 -32.84%

Nobody could fault you for thinking, "I don't trust the markets anymore." However, that would be a mistake. While no money manager can predict the future or provide guarantees, our third party active money managers have the experience to help our clients through this crisis.
Why should people trust this system? History tells us that the financial markets are the engine that generates the funds required to build our schools, bridges and hospitals, as well as providing the capital for all of the amazing technological advancements we've witnessed over the past few decades. While we'd be foolish to ignore the lessons learned from the recent financial meltdown, America's economy is the strongest in the world, with great ability to bounce back.
We are fortunate to have access to one of the world’s most respected active money managers, Paul Dietrich, Foxhall Capital Chairman, CEO and Co-Chief Investment Officer. Foxhall Capital’s goal is to identify long-term persistent trends in the U.S. and Global economic markets to help grow and protect your wealth.
