Housing Transitions in Retirement: It’s Your Move

Webinarson August 30th, 2017No Comments

Affordable, accessible, and well-located housing is central to quality of life for people of all ages, but especially as we near retirement age. As the single largest item in most household budgets, housing costs directly affect day-to-day financial security. In addition, the entire concept of what one considers a good life has many meanings. For the most part, people want an active life — physically, mentally and socially — and to serve those wishes, a living environment should offer those amenities. Education, planning and resources are the key to making the best housing choice for you.

But where do you turn to find informative and reliable resources? We hope you find the following recorded webinar a helpful place to start! In this video, special guest and well-respected life transitions expert, Dr. Jim McCabe, shares insights and resources to help you understand your options when it comes to managing housing transitions in retirement. If you are thinking about a housing transition for yourself or for a loved one, please feel free to contact our team to have a conversation about your specific needs.

Around the World in 60 Minutes

Economy and Investing, Firm News & Events, Webinarson March 24th, 2017No Comments

The world is in a rare state of flux, with a populist, anti-trade president newly installed in the White House, and populist, anti-EU parties on the rise all across the European continent. Economic conditions in the US and abroad, meanwhile, are showing positive trends, but it’s still to be seen whether the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank can successfully walk the thin line between growth and inflation. In this one hour trip around the world, we share our analyses and recommendations for weathering whatever may come.

Video: How to Build an All-Weather Portfolio

Economy and Investing, Videos, Webinarson December 19th, 2013No Comments

Stormy SeaWhen it comes to investing your hard earned money for the long-run, the world can sometimes seem like a scary place. And not just because of the occasional category five storm that blows our way, like the dot-com meltdown of 2000-2002 or the bursting of the real estate bubble in 2008. It’s also all the squalls that can sweep through the markets, triggered by things like the Euro-zone debt crisis, government shutdown, or debt-limit standoff, that likewise threaten feel like they might capsize our portfolios. The one thing we know with a certainty is that the timing, magnitude, or impact of world events can never be predicted with the kind of precision required if we’re to nimbly trade in or out of the markets to avoid danger or capture gains. At the end of the day . . .

It’s better to be resilient than nimble.

This 13 minute video is a brief description of how we build a resilient, all-weather portfolio that can carry you through whatever storms may come our way.

Groundhog Day Revisited

Webinarson February 1st, 2013No Comments

Groundhog Day is more commonly known as the day observed on February 2 where the appearance of the groundhog is meant to symbolize whether spring will come early (the groundhog emerges on a cloudy day) or whether winter will continue for six more weeks (the groundhog sees its shadow and retreats to its burrow).

However, Groundhog Day is also the name of a 1993 comedy starring Bill Murray.  In the movie, Murray finds himself trapped in a time loop where the same day (Feb. 2) repeats over and over again. After exploiting his knowledge of the time loop, he grows desperate to end it, and when he cannot, he reexamines his life and decides to use the time loop to help the people and the town. We don’t want to give away the end of the movie, but if you are curious, visit the film’s IMDB page for the full synopsis (there are spoilers).

The movie was the inspiration for the title of our 2010 webinar “Groundhog Day”, which explored some of the reasons why it can sometimes feel that we’re living the same (scary) day over and over again in the markets, while also offering strategies to harness the underlying goodness found in the economy and the markets in order to achieve our goals.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
