School is back in session. For some, it’s a welcome respite from a busy summer schedule and for others, it’s the start of carpooling, sports schedules, and erratic dinner plans. Like everything else, life is full of every changing twists and turns.

As we head toward the final months of the year, we’re actively reviewing your account and taking advantages of any portfolio repositioning and tax-loss planning (if appropriate).
We remain optimistic that the markets will not only recover, but race to new highs in the years to come. After all, inflation is showing signs of getting under control. Fuel prices are normalizing. Products are ‘slowly’ returning to the shelves. Anyone who wants a job can have a job, and employees are in the driver’s seat when it comes to wage demands. Well established corporations are flush with cash, and the trend towards using technology to make life easier continues to grow.
As for what happens in Washington DC? Well, we’ll leave that up to voters. Regardless of the outcomes, we’re confident that your financial plan is properly aligned with today’s market environment.
