The 2007-2008 market crash caused many investors to lose faith in the US financial markets. People not only lost their retirement savings, their children’s educational funds but they lost their confidence and trust in the financial system. The 2007-2008 crash also included declining values in real estate. Many homeowner’s mortgages were underwater. They owed more than their homes were worth. Many people lost their homes during this period. Most investors during this time, were afraid to put their money with any financial institution. Most wanted to put their money under their mattress and forget about making any kind of returns on their money.
