Holiday season – the perfect time to bake cookies, put up decorations, enjoy time with family and friends – and of course check on the funding status of your retirement plans! I recently worked on this with a client and thought it would be helpful to share. There are a variety of retirement plans that […]

Welcome back to our regularly scheduled programming! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (if you missed the recap of my one-word challenge, you can find it here) It’s been a relatively calm week for markets and the world. Jerome Powell (US Fed Chair) seemingly soothed markets on Wednesday with a speech and former FTX […]

“Let’s go around the table and have everyone share a word capturing what they are most thankful for”  This gratitude check-in has always been a Thanksgiving Day tradition in the Evason household. It’s a really nice way to kick off the dinner and focus in on gratitude and thanks. This year, my word is reunion. […]

At some time in your life (and perhaps during the holiday season), you may be positioned to gift (or receive) a meaningfully sized gift of money or another asset.

When you think of this time of year and harvesting, your mind may go to crops and farming. But don’t forget about harvesting investment losses as well. This topic came up with a client recently who asked for a reminder on why it can be a useful strategy, especially in a down year such as […]

As we turned the calendar to November this week, there were a lot of things to look forward to – final two months of 2022, Thanksgiving around the corner, the few remaining nice days of fall weather (at least for us Midwesterners), and of course – the second to last meeting of 2022 for the […]

I don’t know about you, but think we could all use a little break from the markets. The next few weeks will be action packed – with inflation readings and a Federal Reserve meeting and the midterm elections. So this week, I thought we’d instead do a little exercise together.
