even the most disciplined person can experience a little fear and doubt
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
Four Seasons Financial Education, a fee-for-service vendor of financial wellness programs for employers, has experienced an uptick of activity with recent increases in stock market volatility. This activity includes calls from individual employees and from their employer clients. FSFE president, Travis Freeman, says this increase in activity shows just how important it is to have immediate resources in place to manage employee behavior.
"The same increase in demand occurred in the 2008 and 2009 recession," says Freeman. "When we start experiencing rough waters, even the most disciplined person can experience a little fear and doubt. That's when it's most important to remember what you've learned from your financial wellness program."
Freeman also stated their firm created special programs in 2008 about surviving market downturns after receiving numerous requests from the companies they serve. Such education may help employees better understand how market downturns affect their financial goals. FSFE also works alongside 401(k) vendors to coordinate education and help both participant and non-participant employees.
