E*TRADE Study Reveals Investors Satisfied with Portfolio Decisions amid 2018 Volatility

E*TRADE FINANCIAL Corporation (NASDAQ:ETFC) today announced results from
the most recent wave of StreetWise, the E*TRADE quarterly
tracking study of experienced investors, in which respondents reflected
on 2018 and their resolutions for the New Year.

Wide majority are satisfied with their investing decisions. Despite
a year of heightened volatility, 87% of investors surveyed at the
beginning of the fourth quarter said they were satisfied with how they
managed their investments this year, statistically tied with
satisfaction levels at the same period in 2017.

They are keeping their focus on the long-term. Investors chose
increasing retirement plan contributions as their top resolution for
2019, in line with last year. Gen X investors remain particularly
focused on the long-term, with one out of two (50%) choosing increased
plan contributions as their top resolution and less than one out of
three (31%) choosing reallocating their portfolio to reflect market

Millennials choose knowledge. The top resolution among
Millennials was to learn more about investing, trading, and the
markets (51%).

"This year marked a turning point in the financial marketsa??punctuated by
volatility, trade wars, rising interest rates, and a shifting political
dynamic,a?? said Mike Loewengart, VP of Investment Strategy at E*TRADE
Financial. "The data suggest that in the face of market headwinds and
uncertainty, investors are demonstrating some pretty sophisticated
thinking when it comes to their portfolio decisions, looking past the
near-term noise and focusing on their goals. They seem to take to heart
that the single most important aspect of investing you can control is
how much you put into your nest egg.a??

Mr. Loewengart offered additional insights for investors to consider as
they kick off the New Year:
