If the recent market volatility has had your phone ringing off the hook with questions ranging from the economy, capital markets and political issues – and, the most anxiety-inducing — the potential impact on an investment portfolio – you’re not alone.

To help provide some perspective, we talked to our Strategist Team about their views – on the Standard & Poor’s downgrade, growth projections, employment expectations, inflation, equity market forecasts, gold – and more.

This client-ready summary, in addition to our other regularly updated capital markets commentary (Economic Indicators Dashboard, Business Cycle Index, Russell’s View on timely investment issues), is designed to help you feel more confident in your understanding of the issues.
