An Untimely Death Offers Estate Planning Lessons

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death on February 2nd ended a great film career and we mourn for both the man and the future film-going pleasure we will all now be denied.  As is so often the case when a public figure passes away, Hoffman’s will has garnered more than a little media attention and is a prime example of how an estate plan can help ensure that your desires are understood as well as the importance of keeping the plan up to date.By putting a proper estate plan in place you will ensure that your wishes are known, the right people know them, and that those people will have a smoother time managing your estate. You could also potentially save your estate a good chunk of money on legal fees and taxes.

Here are a few do’s and don’ts to help you get your estate plan in tip top shape.

Dave in the Chicago Tribune

Dave was recently quoted in the Chicago Tribune, where writer Janet Kidd Stewart tells readers how ‘Getting personal with your financial expert can pay off.’ Stewart suggests that clients get more for their money if their financial adviser has conversations with them and plans for those things that matter most to them, including the lifestyle they want now and in the future. Many financial service firms are increasing their efforts to address these important planning areas with clients. So how do you balance the values/lifestyle discussion with the numbers? Dave tells Stewart that it requires more than just a good relationship.

TheLiveBigWay Digeston February 13th, 2014No Comments

Investor Behavior: The Psychology of Financial Planning and Investing

Why do investors behave as they do? That is the question posed and answered by the book “Investor Behavior: The Psychology of Financial Planning and Investing,” edited by H. Kent Baker and Victor Ricciardi and published by Wiley Finance.

Dave and Elissa were part of the dynamic team of academics and experienced practitioners who contributed to the body of knowledge in “Investor Behavior.” Their contribution, “Policy-Based Financial Planning: Decision Rules for a Changing World,” places Policy-Based Financial Planning squarely within the context of behavioral finance and “choice architecture.”

Dave Quoted in CNBC – Stocks Still Tops, Advisor Survey Finds

When it comes to assessing where the right place is to put money to work in 2014, Andrew Osterland of CNBC reports that advisors are significantly in agreement: tilt towards stocks. Of the 1,449 CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professionals surveyed by CNBC/Financial Planning Association, 87% were bullish on stocks, particularly when the investment strategy is long-term. In addition to the stock tilt, advisors are shifting towards greater international exposure, shortening bond holdings, and focusing on rebalancing. Find out more

TheLiveBigWay* Digest – A Different Dimension

TheLiveBigWay Digeston January 16th, 2014No Comments

A Different Dimension

Nobelist Gene Fama and Dimensional Fund Advisors have drawn favorable attention lately with both a cover feature in Barron’s and an appreciation in Morningstar.

That certainly seems like a lot of attention to be lavished on a mutual fund company.  In her article, Beverly Goodman says that “Dimensional Fund Advisors is unusual” and John Rekenthaler declares that DFA “really is different.”  Unusual and different in what way, one might rightly ask.  And why should anyone care?
2013 Large Account Model Performance 2 2013 Portfolio Review

Everyone by now is aware of the great year that the S&P 500 had in 2013, returning more than 32%, its best performance since 1997.  We thought this might be a good time to review the overall performance of our clients’ portfolios for the year, not least because they’re much more diverse than the S&P 500, encompassing, as they do, not just the 500 domestic Blue Chip stocks of the S&P index, but value stocks and small company stocks the world over.
 Short Take: U.S. Economic and Financial Market Outlook

Our San Francisco financial planning team attended a Financial Planning Association of San Francisco meeting on Tuesday that featured Gary Schlossburg, Senior Economist for Wells Capital Management, presenting on the outlook for the U.S. economy and financial markets into 2015. We thought we’d share a few highlights from Gary’s generally upbeat assessment.

The next piece was published three days before the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell to its lowest point of the Great Recession. While the news had been filled with stories of a crumbling economy for nearly a year at this point, the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers in September of the preceding year had set the stage for six months of worsening news and growing anxiety. This article was an invitation to step back from the doom and gloom of the nightly news and contemplate those things in life that really matter and the many ways to “Live Big” without spending money. The article catapulted Elissa and Dave to the cover of Financial Advisor Magazine and a mention in Time.

What does it mean to Live Big® in these trying times?
What does Live Big mean?  Some may interpret it as meaning “spend big”, “live large” or a recommendation to some other form of overindulgence.  But Live Big is not about the size of your wallet, it’s about the size of your life.  In these crazy economic times, it can sometimes be difficult to remember the areas in our life where we can Live Big without spending (much, if any) money.  But if we can find the place of gratitude for what we have, we can find joy in the most mundane of places, and, hopefully, at least get our minds off of how scary the world can feel at times.
Here’s wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!

TheLiveBigWay* Digest – Flash Mobs and Fortitude

TheLiveBigWay Digeston December 19th, 2013No Comments
As we prepare this edition of the Digest, we’re hoping that you’ll have the opportunity to take a restful break in the final days of 2013. The end of the year is always a time to reflect upon all that has transpired in our lives and in the world and to form our intentions for the year to come. As we contemplate our own experiences of the year now drawing to a close, we count among our many blessings the fact that you are in our lives. Here’s wishing you and yours a happy holiday season and all the best in the year to come.
Stormy Sea How to Build an All-Weather Portfolio

When it comes to investing your hard earned money for the long-run, the world can sometimes seem like a scary place. 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.

TheLiveBigWay* Digest – Goings on About Town

Investment Update - Going Short (Really Short!)

No, we haven’t decided to short the stock market — not by a long-shot! — but we have decided to shorten the average maturity of our bond holdings. We’re doing this by swapping all of the DFA 5-Year Global Bond portfolio (DFGBX) into the DFA One-Year Fixed Income portfolio (DFIHX). The reason for this change was our desire to further reduce the “interest rate risk” in our portfolios.

Read more about why we made this change.

Wine, Whiskey, and Wicked ROI

On Wednesday, November 13, Women’s Initiative held a fundraiser in support of their mission to help inspire and equip high-potential, low-income women entrepreneurs to overcome economic and social barriers and achieve self-sufficiency. Our own Jennifer Micieli attended the event at Union Bank in San Francisco where Yeske Buie was a sponsor.

The event offered wine and whiskey tastings, along with a silent auction in addition to the main program. The artwork on the left was one of the many items to be auctioned. The image is meant to evoke the spirit of never giving up, a message that Women’s Initiative is determined to instill in the women they support.
Women’s initiative is a non-profit that provides training, peer-support, a loan fund, and various asset-building opportunities to women entrepreneurs. The organization encourages business growth, job creation, and a deep sense of community for all those involved. And last but not least, Women’s Initiative provides a wicked ROI: for every $1 invested in the program, $30 is returned to the local economy.Learn more about the Women’s Initiative.
The Adventures Of #SFBatkid

On Friday, November 15, thousands in San Francisco and millions around the country through news stations and social media, got to watch a real-life superhero, 5-year-old Miles who is in remission after being diagnosed with leukemia at 20-months-old, as his dream of partnering with his favorite superhero came true.

Dubbed ‘Batkid’, Miles was treated by the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the City of San Francisco to an all-day cape crusading adventure. The members of our San Francisco office got to see Batkid up close when he was driven by the office on Montgomery Street having just apprehended The Riddler.

Watch a brief video of Miles’ dream coming true…

The Yeske Buie Team came together earlier this month for one of our semi-annual staff retreats, this one focused on mindfulness and servant leadership. We had a great time exploring the natural beauty of Anvil Ranch while learning the value of breath and mindfulness practices and engaging in several team building exercises, including the construction of two labyrinths. All of which ultimately prepared us for an intense and productive session setting Yeske Buie’s firm goals for 2014.
At the end of our retreat, we returned to San Francisco just in time to host our annual San Francisco Open House. Take a look at pictures we took throughout both events.

Also, this was the first year we hosted a tarot card reader and from the reviews it appears that we should consider doing that or something similar again! We thoroughly enjoyed having Jamie at the event and for those of you who weren’t able to see her or just want to go back for more, check out her website.

“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
