Government Avoids Disaster, But Retirees Still In Danger Warns Investments Management Advisor Jeff Voudrie of Common Sense Advisors

Share Article

Even though the federal government was able to avoid a default on its debt and negotiated its way out of the brief shutdown, Jeff Voudrie, a highly respected financial planner in Johnson City, TN says that this escape only proves the peril for the individual investor, including retirees. The investments management specialist argues for a new approach to investing.

'In highly manipulated markets, the individual investor is at a huge disadvantage and traditional strategies like ‘Buy and Hold’ expose them to significant losses,' says investments management advisor Jeff Voudrie.

Jeff Voudrie, president of Common Sense Advisors, noted: “In highly manipulated markets, the individual investor is at a huge disadvantage and traditional strategies like ‘Buy and Hold’ expose them to significant losses.”

Jeff Voudrie has long argued that the traditional “Buy and Hold” strategy of investing belonged to another era that is gone forever. He argues for two new approaches to investing in today’s volatile market climate, and he has three patents to prove the uniqueness of his approach. Voudrie, who has been widely quoted in the national media for his insights into investing, says that retirees must minimize risk by investing in a way that provides real-time monitoring and allows for rapid responses during times of crisis to prevent significant loss. He has patented revolutionary software that accomplishes this sensitive reaction to market swings in service of his clients.

Voudrie also has recommended that investors find personal money managers who take fewer clients in exchange for personalized and rapid service with hard-won nest eggs on the line. “This is especially true for retirees who have the pressure to earn a decent return, but don’t have the time to recover from a big hit. They, in particular, can benefit greatly from the sophisticated approach taken by a personal money manager like myself that focuses on protecting the account value first and earning prudent profits second,” he added.

The government’s ability to wiggle its way out of crisis only reinforces the new era of financial reality, Voudrie says. The frequent manipulation of both investors’ emotions and market tools necessitates a very careful approach to investment that majors on minimizing losses.

As the media tried to drum up the story of a possible U.S. default on its debt, Voudrie urged calm in preparation for the non-storm. “Only minor adjustments should be made. Don’t panic and move everything to cash,” he correctly advised on a LinkedIn post.

“If you are fully invested in stocks yet are risk averse, then you may need to rethink how much exposure you are comfortable with. Even then, I wouldn't react based on the debt ceiling issue. In fact, the decisions of the Federal Reserve to not ‘taper' at its last meeting, combined with the nomination of Janet Yellen by President Obama to head the Federal Reserve, are bigger catalysts for portfolio adjustment than the government shutdown/debt default issues,” he concluded in the post.
