Service & Fees
We offer two services: Investment Management and Financial Planning. First we define the financial planning assignment, then assemble our proposals.
We relate the latest business news and how it is affecting our clients. We offer many helpful tips, advice for all investors including our valuable 2 cents.
For 2021, U.S. stock markets were up about 19% to 27% depending upon which index is chosen for measure. The Standard & Poor’s Index notched seventy new all-time highs during 2021. Strength centered on well- known Big Technology names and integrated circuit (“chip”) companies, as well as oil and gas producers. Our energy transportation holdings also did well.
Globally, equities rose 17% following a strong 2020. Looking at the bar graph below, one would hardly realize that a worldwide pandemic began in 2020 !
