Financial Experts Are Not Fortunetellers

by Samuel N. Asare

lost401kDon’t let them tell you otherwise. No matter how much experience they have or how good a track record, no financial expert knows with certainty where the markets are headed tomorrow, nor can they guarantee that you will be in a lower tax bracket once you enter retirement. This is simply an insidious myth that has permeated our culture. The thing is, you don’t need a crystal ball if you’ve got good old common sense!

One of the most widespread yet saddest mistakes investors make is believing that financial professionals have some sort of magical ability to accurately predict the future when it comes to the direction of the stock market. Time and time again, unsuspecting but well-intentioned investors are swayed by the opinions of TV personalities and commentators regarding which investments to buy and/or sell.

In most instances, things turn out badly for these investors, who are left to fend for themselves when, at the end of the day, reality hits home: that these so-called prediction experts are unable to forecast with precision what will happen even the very next day. One problem is that investors often confuse after-market analyses and commentaries for predictions, forgetting that assessing what went wrong in hindsight requires very little skill or expertise.

We have often said that it would be nice, as financial professionals, to possess the ability to predict the exact future movements of the stock market. But if we could really produce such results with any reliability … well, we’d likely be retired on our own private islands, cruising the open waves, being pampered with an endless supply of piña coladas, and singing “Kumbaya” – instead of working as your advisors to earn our own incomes.

Food for thought!
