This year could be summed up in one word – seasick. After a smooth 2017, 2018 has been marked by some pretty hefty volatility. Wild market swings are back as investors are starting to factor in a slowing economy, geopolitical events and less-than-bullish data into their valuations. And because of that, the markets have been choppy to say the least.

For some investors – especially those on the cusp or in retirement – this choppiness is a bit much to handle. Afterall, time heals all volatility wounds. But if you don’t have the timeline, higher volatility is a killer. However, ETFs can help on this front.

So-called low-volatility ETFs have continued to prove their worth over the last year including the latest market downturn. For older investors, making a big play on these funds could help them get through the current malaise and capture some of the market’s upside. Fleeing to cash may not be needed.
