Today’s episode is a presentation I have put together about how to prepare for raising interest rates and other topics. I answer many questions about interest rates and how a fund can better prepare you for an economic downturn. Some of the questions I answer are,
- What to do when interest rates go up.
- What does the Federal Reserve do?
- How can you protect your investments during an economic change?
