  • 10 Things To Consider
    In Your Retirement Planning
    - Go straight to the slideshow We’ve moved away from the historical retirement model in the U.S. – that being a well-funded Social Security system, substantial corporate pensions, and strong personal savings. We’re now seeing a proliferation of employer-sponsored contribution plans – 401(k)s and 403(b)s – which are excellent ways to save, but relatively new. As […]
  • Thinking of Moving When You Retire? - I talk to a lot of folks who plan to move when they retire, or at some point during their non-working years. Some want to stay where they are, but want to rent, or they want to transition to a home in an established retirement community. Either way, they don’t want to be responsible for […]
  • Time To Go To Cash? - It’s early Wednesday morning as I get ready to fly back to Philly.  With the Fed set to make an announcement later today, this column may be old news by the time you read this. Never the less, it has not only been a few tough weeks in the market, but it has been a […]
  • Is Your Retirement Plan On Track? - Some days it’s hard to tell but overall, Americans are an optimistic people.  But, when it comes to retirement security, many people have their doubts.  When Kyle or I sit down with someone to meet with them for the first time, a few of the most common questions that we get asked are “Are we […]
  • Radio Caller Questions: IRA Q&A - Every week we get a number of email questions that we try to answer on the air (by the way, you can now hear us on WNTP 990AM on Saturdays at 8 a.m. along with our usual spot on Sundays at noon). Below are a few of the more interesting ones we’ve received lately. If […]
  • Digital Assets, Passwords and the Last Limo Ride - How the world has changed.  In the old days, like 20 years ago, you had a will, maybe a trust and perhaps a safe deposit box.  A few even had safes in their homes.  It was easy to make certain that, if you became incapacitated or died, someone close to you could easily handle your […]
  • Should You Try To Match Or Beat The S&P 500? - Many investors feel the need to match or exceed the S&P in the good years.  If they don’t, they consider themselves or their money managers a failure.  At the same time, when the market takes a major hit, nobody wants to match the S&P.  Go figure. One investment principle I believe in is the need […]
  • A Downsizer’s Question: Buy or Rent? - So often I am asked by clients for my thoughts on them selling the big house and downsizing now that they are finally empty nesters. A few months back I wrote about clients looking to buy vacation homes. More recent, frequent discussions about not only moving but whether to buy or rent. A recent column […]
  • Robots, Uber and Airbnb - Over the past few weeks I’ve read several eye-opening articles and columns about the future of businesses and jobs.  For example, will taxis become a thing of the past?  It’s not too hard to imagine a future where the Uber car service that you ordered on your iPhone app picks you up, but with no […]
  • Wish You Had Retired Earlier? - If the answer is yes, you are not alone. A recent study done by the Insured Retirement Institute found that 50% of those ages 62 to 70 with investable assets of $100,000 or more wish they had retired earlier. I find this interesting because I don’t often hear clients tell me they wish they had […] Profile
