It’s no secret that the explosive rise of technology in recent decades has drastically changed the landscape of our everyday world. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that advancing technology has a particularly far-reaching impact on members of the older generations. Today’s seniors are using this world of new possibilities to live longer, more independent and fulfilling lives. According to their website, the MIT AgeLab “…is a multidisciplinary research program that works with business, government, and NGOs to improve …

Coronavirus, DOW Drops 3,600 points in the last 2 weeks – “What the heck do we do, John?” My thoughts ….

VanceWealth Market Commentary, Market Update

Likely, you have been consuming too much news lately, so I wanted to provide you with my thoughts. So, here we go:   No doubt, a significant drop (like 3,600 points in the DOW) is unsettling, and the media LOVES the headlines – Fear sells. The stock market has been pretty “overbought” and ready for “something” to interrupt the run. Input has been consistent that the fundamentals of the economy remain strong (low unemployment, solid balance sheets, etc.), and this …

Kicking off the quarter, Carmen and I took a trip to Kauai, where we sought out adventure. We went zip-lining, took a helicopter ride, rode ATVs, and enjoyed a zodiac boat ride along the Na Pali Coast.  I spent much of the quarter out in the community, as well, participating in a couple of great events. I served as the Chair for this year’s SCV Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament in October, which was a fun way to get to …

2020 Q1 Investment Update

VanceWealth Market Commentary, Market Update

Economists called for a recession in 2019; the market didn’t answer. We came off a record-setting year where we saw the most significant market gains since 2013. In a year where many called for a recession (not us), we would say that is pretty good. Now those same individuals say it will happen in 2020 or 2021. Well, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Looking ahead, we can’t predict what 2020 will bring in terms of economies, …

For some time now, we’ve been following the SECURE Act as it made its way through Congress. Now the retirement savings reform bill has become law, and we wanted to offer an update on its provisions.   The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act of 2019 broadens the effectiveness of individual retirement accounts and employer-sponsored retirement savings plans. Essentially, it expands access to tax-advantaged retirement savings accounts and, ultimately, aims to help Americans save enough for a …

Restoring Confidence: After the loss of a spouse the last thing you want to worry about is Money.

VanceWealth Uncategorized

The loss of a spouse is something we spend nearly our entire lives fearing, which also means we don’t typically spend a lot of time thinking — or planning — for this kind of event. But in a moment of devastating pain, having a plan gives you the confidence to focus on what really matters, rather than worrying about where the money will come from. “It’s our job to help you protect those who matter most, and that’s more than …
