“ What do you regard as the most difficult period in the financial markets during your 25 years in the investment business?”
I am often asked this question, usually by people who already have a framework and opinion as a result of living through one or several market downturns. For example, many older advisors and their clients regard the 1973–1974 bear market as the toughest period in their investment lifetime.
