Irrational Exuberance: Risk Management Lessons from Shiller's Classic

On March 15th, 2000, Robert Shiller published the cautionary tale 'Irrational Exuberance'.  Seven trading days later, the Dot-com bubble burst and the S&P 500 lost nearly half its value over the following three years. What lessons can be learned by revisiting the driving factors of irrational exuberance and assessing the risks in today's market?

In the upcoming webcast, Swan Global Investments and ETF Trends will outline the challenging market conditions investors are facing today, highlight factors driving market volatility, and review an alternative strategy that can help financial advisors navigate the many risks and challenges ahead.
