The midterm elections are over, and investors are asking themselves a lot of questions about what the “split Congress” means for their money. We’ve fielded many questions from clients on the implications of the election, and that’s why I know there’s a lot of uncertainty about what this all means for your financial planning.

In this episode of the Science of Economic Freedom, “Your Post-Election Market Update,” I answer the pressing questions on many investors’ minds right now, including:

  • What’s next for the markets?
  • Did the election results really matter to your personal finances?
  • What should you do now with your asset allocation?
  • Are these, in fact, even the right questions to be asking?
  • What questions you should be asking your financial advisor right now
  • Why the stock market news headlines are not your friend
  • Plus, much more.

Political change, just like any kind of significant change, can be uncomfortable psychologically. But as you’ll find out after listening to this episode, there really is no cause for alarm. In fact, the data overwhelmingly skews in investors’ favor.
