Today’s investors are faced with a number of options — many of which are probably best explored with the help of a financial advisor.
In September we ran a poll and solicited questions for a new video Q&A series called "Ask A Financial Expert" that we're producing with OppenheimerFunds, which will be aimed at answering investors' questions about managing their portfolios. We're now pleased to present the first part of our series, addressing the question, "How can I tell if my portfolio has the right balance of growth, income, and protection*?" Watch as Brian Levitt, senior economist at OppenheimerFunds, talks investors through the factors they need to consider, including looking for growth around the world and thinking about more than just what happened in 2008.
