Our industry sometimes focuses too narrowly on rate of return.

As Certified Financial Planners we are committed to encouraging savings for a rainy day, whether that is an emergency fund or for retirement.

The irony of it all is that you’ve done the hard part already! Maybe you’ve sacrificed a little from every paycheck to save for retirement and now you’re practically here. If you are like many Americans approaching retirement or recently retired, you too may be finding the decisions you must make on how to spend […]

The book that sits in the glovebox of your car has the obligatory ‘Ongoing Maintenance’ section, highlighting how often you should be changing your oil, flushing your transmission fluid and a slew of other tune-up services. However, no one probably gave you an ongoing maintenance guide to your financial life once your account balances started […]

The temptation to make tweaks to investments and move money around, especially when markets are particularly volatile, may be hard to resist. In our experience, periods of volatility are exactly when being […]
We all bring our own biases from our life experiences to any decision, whether it’s our health, jobs, politics or our money.
