If you invested in bond mutual funds over the last few years, you might have been surprised to see your positions get annihilated. Why did this happen, and what can you do about it Moving forward? 

In this new series, we are peeling back the layers on what bonds really are, how they function, and the pivotal role of interest rates and market pressures that can either make or break your bond portfolio.

Step into the world of bonds with our analogies that simplify this complex market, making it as relatable as selling your own home. We'll break down the dual avenues of bond profit—interest payments and capital appreciation—and bust the myths surrounding their supposed safety and predictable yields. The turbulence of the past year's market serves as a foundation for our candid discussion, emphasizing the necessity of a discerning eye when it comes to the fine print of your bond agreements.

Lastly, we navigate the sometimes choppy waters of bond trading, where we dissect how market unrest can lead to opportunities for the astute investor and pitfalls for the unwary. We arm you with the insights to strategically approach your bond investments, ensuring you're prepared for the uncertain tides ahead.

Steve Campbell Podcaster | Business Owner | Husband | Father to Four

Based on lessons learned during the 2008 Financial Crisis and extensive professional experience, Ditch the Suit’s was a response to the panic induced by the COVID-19 Financial Crisis, where a collision of social fear and financial volatility, fueled by the politicization of nearly every issue, seemed to tip the world upside down. With the goal to help people avoid making financially destructive decisions, co-hosts Travis Maus and Steve Campbell produced daily recordings on a wide range of topics, such as staying positive, understanding the financial impact of new legislation, how to take advantage of the stock market when it crashes, blocking out fear-mongering, etc. which eventually gave way to the creation of the Ditch the Suits Podcast.

Ditch the Suits has become more than a podcast – it’s become a movement. Travis and Steve share their experiences and industry insights in order to help you make one good financial decision after another.

Their listeners know they will hear things from us that no one else is willing to tell them!
