Life insurance can serve several purposes.

Almost everyone has been able to make money in recent years. The stock market has had some very good returns lately. However, how will your portfolio withstand a downturn of 10%, 20% or more?

If you don’t know, or your adviser hasn’t addressed a stock market correction, maybe you need to talk to someone who has a plan for when times aren’t as profitable as they been recently.
