THIRD QUARTER 2022 NEWSLETTER

Transition and volatility shaped the first half of 2022. Slowing economic growth, higher interest rates, reduced fiscal support measures, and compressing profit margins continue to fuel volatility. The uncertainty is elevated due to central bank policy makers who remain committed to increase interest rates as they fight inflation while attempting to navigate a “soft landing” for the global economy.


SECOND QUARTER 2022 NEWSLETTER

A human tragedy is unfolding at the hands of armed Russian invaders inflicting an unconscionable toll on the Ukrainian people. Global inflationary implications of punitive economic sanctions make solving the complicated inflation puzzle challenging. However, the U.S. consumer strength remains a beacon of light. Central Banks, poised to increase interest rates, face a delicate balancing act. They must factor in economic disruptions from the conflict as they address an already challenging inflationary environment.


FIRST QUARTER 2022 NEWSLETTER

January is the time when market pundits and economists offer projections and estimates for the upcoming year. Inevitably, most attempts at predicting the future fall short. Knowing the unknown is impossible. Since economic and market forecasting are inexact sciences, we approach this time of year differently, by asking “What Matters and Why?” This thought exercise gives us more clarity on how we plan to protect our clients’ assets.


FOURTH QUARTER 2021 NEWSLETTER

Investing is a journey during which investors are on an unending quest for answers. While many answers are elusive, a continual thought exercise of question-asking allows you to better understand the potential influences on market pricing. Currently, two of the more critical questions on investors’ minds are related to inflationary pressures and the potential economic impact of the Delta and other potential COVID-19 variants. Only the passage of time and the collection of additional data will shed light on the answers.


THIRD QUARTER 2021 NEWSLETTER

What a difference the passage of time makes. The midpoint of 2021 is a stark contrast to the challenging environment the global community faced a year ago. We were learning a new lexicon that included social distancing, contact tracing, case counts and trying to “flatten the curve.” Today, vaccine rollouts, economic re-openings, dramatically improved health metrics and greater mobility are drivers of a healthier economy and sources of great optimism. As the economy continues to rebound and confidence levels grow, it is important to recognize that considerable work lies ahead to repair the deep fissures created by COVID-19.
