Risky Business: When Bonds Act Like Stocks
While municipal bonds offer tax-breaks (and sometimes relatively higher yields) that can make them seem like attractive investments, their behavior can be more akin to that of stocks. Read on to learn more about why we steer clear of muni’s in our Clients’ bond portfolios.
Reverse Mortgage Mini-Series
Thanks to updated regulations and requirements, reverse mortgages have become a more appealing planning strategy for aging clients in multiple scenarios. As such, we wrote a two-part Reverse Mortgage Mini-Series that provides a basic overview of Home Equity Conversation Mortgages (HECM) and additional details on HECM’s including costs, calculations, payments and more. Learn more here: Part I and Part II.
Money in Movies
After a long hiatus forced by the pandemic, it’s starting to feel like the box office is making a comeback! Whether you chose to head to the theater or stream new releases at home, we felt it timely to share a fun piece we call Money in Movies which features nearly two dozen films that have money as a character. What movies might you add to our list?
The Hope Chronicles
As we continue to weave a film focus through this week’s edition of the Digest, we share three stories with Hollywood flair that boost our spirits. We hope they make you smile, as well. Don’t forget that these stories and more are available in our full gallery of The Hope Chronicles.
This homeless artist who lost everything in a fire is now getting attention from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. It’s an incredible story proving how one act of kindness can change someone’s life.
Back to the Future
Flying cars are just for science-fiction films, right? Not anymore! Last week, a flying car completed the first ever inter-city flight underscoring our belief that human beings are fundamentally growth-seeking, ingenious, and resilient.
