Navigate market uncertainty
Global growth in 2018 has become uneven. Market swings are on the rise, fueled by rising economic uncertainty and increasing U.S. interest rates. We see steady global growth rolling on, but investors may want to prepare against potential market dips.
The importance of portfolio resilience is growing as economic uncertainty picks up. Learn which investments can help provide a potential buffer.

Our take on the "neutral" rate
What is the “neutral” rate of interest? And why should you care? It is an estimated level of interest rate at which monetary policy neither stimulates nor restricts growth – and a key input in the Federal Reserve’s policy making. We share our estimates of the “neutral” in the weekly commentary.

Raise your
retirement IQ
People are living longer, which means they need their retirement savings to last longer, too. Starting early and understanding the different ways to save can help investors build a retirement plan with confidence.
The investment needs of your retirement plan will likely change over time. No matter where you are in life, find a plan that matches your goals and tolerance for risk.
Target date funds mix different types of stocks, bonds and other investments that rebalance over time, targeting the year you would like to retire.
These target date funds are professionally managed portfolios of diversified investments that adjust over time.

Invest to generate income
Record low yields are making it harder to generate income in portfolios. Investors may need to think outside the box to boost returns, such as looking to corporate bonds or emerging markets.
Emerging markets have had a bumpy year, but there may be more to the story. We believe market setbacks may create an opportunity to invest.
