Perhaps this year, more than ever, Thanksgiving gives us a chance to appreciate what we have – friendships, relationships, and a sense of connection. These gifts are priceless.

We also want to thank you for choosing us as your trusted financial professional and for allowing us to help you pursue your goals. That’s a trust we never take for granted.

Although this holiday may be a unique one, we hope it brings you some beautiful memories. We wish you a great Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season.


Speed Bumps and Headlines

As an investor, it can be tempting to get caught up in daily news headlines. Consider how news about the election and COVID-19 vaccines have moved the markets over the past several weeks. But having a financial strategy can help you ignore short-term volatility and focus on your long-term vision.

As you know, investing is a process based on your goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance. Interestingly enough, it’s also a process that may help you prepare for life’s financial challenges.

For example, did you know that only 44 percent of workers have estimated how much income they would need in retirement? What’s more, only 36 percent have calculated how much money they would need to cover healthcare expenses.1

Creating a financial strategy means thinking about the bigger picture, including a variety of issues like monthly income needs, handling unexpected expenses, and preparing for healthcare costs. People who take a “do-it-yourself” approach can quickly find themselves overwhelmed by all the variables they need to consider.

If a current event or headline has caused you to reconsider your financial strategy, please give us a call. Sometimes, a newsworthy event can require a new approach. But many times, it may just be a “speed bump,” a momentary blip that’s already factored into your long-term vision.


The Investment Risk No One's Ever Heard of

Any knowledgeable investor understands that there are a number of risks when investing in the capital markets. Some of these risks can be mitigated by diversification and other strategies we put in place at MONECO.

However, there is a lesser-known risk that cannot be easily reduced by diversification: The sequence of returns risk. Click here to learn more.


Package Up Your Kindness

It's giving month at MONECO Advisors, and we want to provide you with different incentives to give back to your community. It might seem hard to find a meaningful way to give back besides monetary donations. However, a care package is a great way to start. At the link below, you can find checklists to make care packages for the homeless, nursing homes, children's hospitals, and the military.
