First Quarter 2022 Newsletter
Stop Asking When. Start Asking Why. Sarah K. Charles, CSRIC™, AIF® / Director of Business Strategy“Is now the right time to invest?”It is one of the most common questions that investors ask as they process the various threads of geopolitical events, macro-economic trends, natural disasters, cultural phenomena, and hair-raising headlines that are woven together into the tapestry of good news, bad news and uncertainty that is the backdrop for our lives. The first quarter of 2022 – which incidentally was the worst quarter for U.S. markets in 2 years and ended a 7-quarter streak of positive returns – was especially challenging for investors because instead of a single narrative to navigate e.g., Covid OR inflation OR supply chain OR war, we were bombarded with a multitude of storylines i.e., Covid AND inflation AND supply chain AND war.    On the first trading day of the year, the S&P 500 and the Dow both hit all-time highs.

Is Now the Right Time to Invest?

Is Now the Right Time to Invest?
We’ve been taught that investing and personal finance are a math-based field; an arena ruled by logic. Where data, and tables, and formulas (oh my!) reign supreme. But in the real-world, decisions aren’t made by spreadsheets. They are made by people whose thoughts, feelings, and emotions blur the line between what’s right, and what’s right for us. And our success with money becomes less about what we know, and more about how we behave.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Newsletter

Fourth Quarter 2021 Newsletter
Did you know that you can predict the future by observing a rooster pecking at grain (alectryomancy)? Or by studying patterns in melting wax (ceromancy)? Watching what happens to molten metal after it’s dumped in cold water (molybdomancy) is another method for fortune telling. So is watching parakeets pick up fortune cards (the aptly named parrot astrology).  Divination has been practiced by many cultures for millennia, and the future can be foretold using everything from scattered salt (alomancy) to the sediment at the bottom of a wine glass (tasseography) to the movements of an ax placed on a post (axinomancy).

By: Sarah K. Charles, CSRIC™, AIF® / Director of Business Strategy and Bill Laird, CFA®, CFP® / Chief Investment OfficerA Look Back (Because Hindsight is 20/20) Sarah K. Charles, CSRIC™, AIF®The new fall season of TV boasts 25 reboots. Imagine.  Twenty-five TV shows that have come and gone and are now back again – revived or reimagined; and while I love Frasier Crane as much as anyone, it seems as if we have run out of ideas for new content and find ourselves with no other option but to recycle the characters and storylines of the past.It’s not just the fall TV line-up where stories are being recycled.    Each quarter, when I sit down to write this newsletter, I have one primary objective: find the story that’s been garnering the most headlines in the financial media – and explain it by looking through the lens of financial science instead of what will sell the most advertising.  ...

Women & Wealth: Cracking the Confidence Code in Investing
This event has already occurred.While women are confident in many areas of their financial lives, they have historically felt less confident or no confidence when it comes to investing. Why? Sarah Charles begins with the question “What is confidence?,” a question that Kitty Kay and Claire Shipman set out to answer in their New York Times bestselling book The Confidence Code. She then takes the lessons learned from The Confidence Code and applies them to the basic principles of investing on the hopes that more women will answer “Yes” when asked: are you confident when it comes to investing?VIEW WEBINAR RECORDING HERESpeaker:Sarah Charles, CSRIC™, AIF® / Director of Business Strategy, Sr. Financial Advisor, DHG Wealth AdvisorsDate: November 1, 2021Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ESTCPE: 1 hour CPE, pending approvalCPE Information: CPE Credit: One hour of CPE (pending approval) Delivery Format: Group Internet Based Prerequisites / Advanced Preparat...
