Featured FinTech

FinTech, or Financial Technology, refers to the innovative use of technology to streamline financial activities. While you may initially visualize FinTech as fancy smart phone apps, consider, also, how ATMs replaced bank tellers or how credit cards eased the burden of carrying cash – that’s FinTech! Over the next few months, we’d like to share with you some of the FinTech products that are catching our eye, and highlight them in this space we’re calling Featured FinTech. On deck today is an app called BusyKid, a chore and allowance platform for kids and parents – check it out!

Build a Kit, Make a Plan

Considering the trend of weather events over the past few years, it appears that our reality is a world in which wildfires are an annual event in the West and extreme weather strikes everywhere else. In this reality, having an emergency plan is imperative. We’ve periodically written articles on emergency preparedness, and the same mantra is always true: build a kit, make a plan. With peak hurricane season around the corner, it seems timely to share suggestions, tools, and checklists to ensure you’re prepared for whatever weather comes your way.

Meet the Team: Karen Simons

Last year, Yeske Buie was invited to join a pilot program called the Financial Planner Reentry Initiative, which is focused on diversifying the financial planning workforce by offering internships for experienced, professional, women, seeking to return to the workforce.

Karen started working with us as a Re-Intern in February, and it didn’t take long to see that her high-quality work, care for our Clients, and wealth of expertise were bar none. Today, we are pleased to share that Karen has joined our team full time as a Financial Planning Apprentice. Join us in welcoming Karen to the team by reading our latest edition of Meet the Team.

Strategies for Scholastic Success

Ready or not, we’re nearing the beginning of September – the month when summer gives way to fall, when we’re all supposed to stop wearing white, and when the NFL gets back underway. September also marks National College Savings month. As schools from kindergarten through college begin their fall terms, now is as good a time as any to highlight the importance of preparing for college – both academically and financially. Today, we share resources for parents and students on the education planning journey, including a recording of this week’s back-to-school live webinar.

Elissa and Dave’s Live Big Safari

Elissa and Dave recently returned from a three week, Live Big trip to Africa that included visits to Tanzania, the Serengeti, Zanzibar, and Cape Town.

Have You Reviewed Your Earnings Record?

Social Security is a topic that starts to come into conversation as retirement approaches – When can I start to receive benefits? How much will my benefit be? What about my spouse’s benefit? In addition to discussing and reviewing the options, there are other questions to consider and review prior to that time period. One review you may not instinctively think about is checking to see if your past Social Security earnings have been reported correctly. Read on to learn how you can (simply) check your earnings record and why it matters.

Back-to-School: Strategies for Success

While it can feel like the back-to-school experience fixates on colorful displays found throughout department stores, the path to successful education planning is much more involved and requires a robust approach. Consider the following questions:

  • When is the best time to begin setting aside money for my baby’s education?
  • Help! My daughter’s attitude about budgeting is “What’s the point?”
  • After I move my son into college, I’ll be an empty nester – now what?

If any of these questions resonate with you, we encourage you to join our live webinar on Wednesday, August 22 at 11am PT / 2pm ET for the Yeske Buie team’s answers to these questions and more. Register today!

TheLiveBigWay® Digest – Avoid Surprise – Get Organized!

Reviewing the Benefits: Renting and Buying

Rent or buy? It’s a question we hear and discuss often and it comes from Clients of all ages – whether it’s a newly married millennial couple looking to settle down, retirees looking to downsize, or anyone in between. Like many aspects of financial planning, there is not a one-size-fits-all answer – personal desires and goals matter as much as the monetary aspect. Today, we share a review of the benefits of renting and buying for you to consider when pondering this decision.

Avoid Surprise – Get Organized!

Think about your answers to the following questions: Where is your Last Will and Testament? How about your auto insurance policy? Last year’s tax return? For many of us, our answers are skewed more towards “I don’t know.” And while it’s likely that, if given time, you could unearth all of these financial documents, it is also likely that this quick exercise has uncovered an opportunity for you to better organize these important documents. In this space, we share a few suggestions as you consider what documents to keep, how to organize them, and who to tell about your organization skills.

Finding Financial Independence

With the July 4th holiday upon us, it’s hard not to reflect on the qualities that have made the US unique (when not thinking about baseball, barbecues, and fireworks, that is). Most notably, of course, is our independence. When it comes to financial independence, however, it may not be as easy to reflect on the meaning or embodiment of the term. This ambiguity may be frustrating, but it also allows for individuals to define the term for themselves. Today, we share tools and resources to help you explore and reflect on your definition of financial independence.

Beyond the Crypto Craze: The Rise of Blockchain Technology

Hardly a day goes by where we don’t see headlines about Bitcoin, the rise of cryptocurrencies, and the emerging technologies fueling the craze – we shared a post on the topic earlier this year titled “What is Bitcoin actually worth?”. Today, we’d like to take a deeper dive into the technology that supports Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies known as blockchain. The emergence of blockchain technology may be reminiscent of Buffalo Springfield’s famous song lyrics; “There’s something happening here. But what it is ain’t exactly clear.” Read on for a deeper look at what that something is, and why we as financial planners are paying attention to this disruptive technology.

The 2018 Trends in Investing Survey

This year’s results of The 2018 Trends in Investing Survey have been released and in many ways, last year’s trends parallel this year’s findings. Specifically, the use of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) has climbed again for the eighth consecutive year with 87% of surveyed advisors reporting that they currently use or recommend ETFs with Clients. Additionally, there was a new investment vehicle added to this year’s survey – cryptocurrencies – which advisors largely agreed are “an interesting concept to keep an eye on, but not invest in yet,” at best.

Grounded Investing

At Yeske Buie, we believe there is a science to investing. Unfortunately, much of what passes for investment activity has little connection to this science. To some degree, this comes from the natural human desire to “beat the system,” to gain some special advantage, to find the secret short-cut. But at the end of the day, we believe success in investing is more about discipline than it is about beating the system by picking hot stocks or timing the market. With this in mind, we share eight common investment habits to avoid to maintain a grounded and disciplined approach to investing.

Yeske Buie in the Media: A Close Bond?

CNBC recently shared an article questioning Americans’ relationship with bond funds which they claim to be “America’s favorite investment.” The article argues that while bond funds have been growing in popularity due to their appeal as simple, cheap, and diversified nature, the projected increase in interest rates may make them a less desirable investment over the coming year.

“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
