Monday, October 24th, 2011 and is filed under Saving for Retirement

Are you planning on seeing The Thing this weekend? If so, there are a couple points you might want to bear in mind…#1 – This ‘prequel’ to a scary movie from the past doesn’t sound like it’s for the faint of heart. According to reviews, The Thing is ‘hair-raising, teeth-chattering, suck-your-thumb, put-911-on-speed-dial and want-to-sleep-with-the-lights-on’ kind of scary.  Thus #2…if you go see it, you might want to plan on an unproductive day the following day.

However, it does bring attention to an area in our lives that we often fall short on – planning for the golden years. Read More

Quick Tip – Conservative Investing & Your Retirement Nest Egg

Thursday, October 13th, 2011 and is filed under Investing Quick Tip

Research shows that many women investors are extremely conservative and often do not pursue enough investment portfolios diversification. Putting one’s eggs into the same basket in and of itself can be risky, even when you’re investing in CDs or government securities. A retirement investment strategy that is too low-risk (thus too low-reward) may not pay off in the long run, especially when it comes to having enough to live comfortably on in retirement. Give us a call or schedule a free appointment to take a look at how your portfolio is positioned for long-term performance. We’d love to talk it through with you.
