No, this isn’t a sing-along to the classic 80’s song but rather a question that I’m sure many investors (perhaps yourself included) find themselves asking after another rough quarter. Markets had a tumultuous end to Q3, as rates rose and equities sold off (read more about that dynamic in this week’s client question). In combination […]

It’s hard to escape the constant chatter about rising interest rates lately, so it was only natural for a client to ask about the interplay between interest rates and asset prices. Interest rates are an essential driver of asset prices. You don’t have to take it from me – here’s a quote from famed investor […]

We took a lot of road trips when I was a child. Much to my parent’s chagrin, I would usually ask (at least a few times per trip) the age old question – “are we there yet?” I wasn’t trying to be annoying, I promise! I was simply tired of sitting still, tired of waiting […]

When in a meeting recently, I was explaining to a client a quick way to think about varying rates of return – the Rule of 72.  The client wasn’t familiar with it – so I thought a few of you may also wish to learn more about this simple but effective formula. It’s called the […]

As I watched the recent inflation release on Tuesday (and the subsequent jarring market decline), a common phrase kept coming into my mind over and over – “change is hard.” How many times have I said or heard that saying in my lifetime? At least a few hundred – maybe more. Why do I always […]

A silver lining of recent interest rate increases is the ability to earn some level of interest on cash balances. When reviewing the various options with a client recently, she asked what exactly a money market fund was and whether there were any risks associated with this investment vehicle.

It’s officially back to school season. The streets are once again filled with school buses and my social media feeds contain pictures of smiling kids on their front porches, all ready for their first day. I always loved school. Not necessarily all of the logistics and social dynamics – but the learning element. Our school […]

When discussing the upcoming annual enrollment season (the time of year when employees need to elect various health care and employee benefit elections), a client recently asked for a refresher on Health Savings Accounts (commonly known as HSAs).
