Tips for handling market volatility

Investing for a long-term goal—such as retirement—takes planning, patience, and discipline. But sometimes market activity can cause investors to question their planning while it erodes their patience and discipline. Whether you have a John Hancock retirement plan or not, we can help you educate participants about the ups and downs of the stock market.

Help participants understand how the market works

Use our market dynamics education library to help participants navigate through tough market conditions. The library covers relevant topics:

  • The power of long-term investing
  • Diversifying your portfolio to capture steadier returns
  • Making contributions through market ups and downs
  • When markets are down, stay the course
  • Taking emotion out of investing
  • Long-term investing: a marathon, not a sprint
  • Time in the market, not timing the market
  • Bear markets shouldn't scare you
