It is well known that some physicians have a reputation for being poor investors—buying as the market peaks, selling as the market bottoms, and easily trusting brokers, agents, or other commission-driven salespeople.

A portfolio strategy or reasoned wealth building discipline often seems absent. While those physicians are heading in the right direction by creating a portfolio, it is important for them to also develop a strategy for that portfolio to ensure it stays on track with their investment goals.

This document is known as an Investment Policy Statement [IPS], and our take on it was recently published in Physician’s Money Digest.

We now extend the concept to our ME-P readers for their review and consideration.

    How do you feel about your investment knowledge? Are you comfortable and confident with your choices? What about your ability to withstand short-term losses?

    These are the questions at the core of any discussion of risk tolerance. Some people are able to ride through turbulence in the financial markets with a shrug while others suffer headaches. Many investment professionals recommend that their clients adopt an investment policy statement (IPS) to do so, and to address matters such as long-range goals and desired returns.

    So – No matter where you are with your investments, there is always opportunity to increase your financial confidence with a solid plan.
