We’d like to extend a big congratulations to all those who will be graduating in the coming months. For upcoming college grads, the notion of entering the “real world” can feel equally exciting and ambiguous. The reality of becoming financially independent means accepting a deepened responsibility for how you choose to manage your money and pursue a sustainable lifestyle. For those embarking on this new chapter of their financial journey, we share a few do’s and don’ts of personal finance that you may find helpful to keep in mind.
Yeske Buie in the Media: A Close Bond?
CNBC recently shared an article questioning Americans’ relationship with bond funds which they claim to be “America’s favorite investment.” The article argues that while bond funds have been growing in popularity due to their appeal as simple, cheap, and diversified nature, the projected increase in interest rates may make them a less desirable investment over the coming year. To gain a broader perspective on this argument, a number of prominent financial professionals including Dr. Dave Yeske shared their opinions with CNBC. Read on to see what Dave had to say about Yeske Buie’s opinion of bond funds.

In addition to the panel, Lauren also shared her thoughts on attracting and retaining the next generation of planners in an interview featured on Asset TV. See what Lauren had to say about Yeske Buie’s practices.
