2021 Q2 Investment Update

VanceWealth Financial Planning, Market Update

We’ve officially surpassed the 1-Year Anniversary of this pandemic. I do not think any of us realized it would go on for this long, considering what we were told in the beginning. When we look back over the past year, I feel like in general it flew by because we did not really do much and everything seemed to blend together. But, while we were in it, the time seemed to crawl by day to day and week to week. …

Since the coronavirus outbreak, planning ahead has never felt more difficult. From revenue projections to school schedules, our daily lives have been focused on short-term solutions without much guarantee of what the future may hold. We’ve been running our businesses and lives in survival mode because, for a time, it was necessary.

With the Election Looming, Have the Results Mattered Historically for Markets?

VanceWealth Market Commentary, Market Update, Political Commentary

It has been argued that the upcoming election on November 3rd between Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and the incumbent Republican president Donald Trump, is the most important election in history. I am not here to argue that; I believe every election is important. But, while important, has it really mattered who won (Democrat or Republican) historically for the markets? The short answer is no.   In terms of overall market performance, we’ve seen the markets do well under Republican …

If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that most of us don’t like uncertainty. It’s inherent in our nature, we like safety and security. If you’re nearing retirement, you’re probably asking yourself, “do I have enough to retire, with the lifestyle I had planned?” As simple as it sounds, living comfortably comes down to cash flow.

2020 Q2 Investment Update The COVID-19 outbreak has led to unprecedented volatility and tremendous declines in wealth, but we have faith that once the pandemic is defeated, the wild swings in the financial markets will subside and prosperity will return. But, what cannot be so easily recovered is the loss of a job, the loss of a business, or, worst of all, the loss of a loved one. While it is our duty to provide timely market insights, please know …
