Upcoming Changes To Your 401k Statement

Your 401k statement may look a bit different at the end of the quarter due to a new requirement that was part of the SECURE Act to allow investors in these plans to better visualize the longer term implications of contributing to a qualified retirement plan. The motivation was to also show participants whether their current savings will be sufficient to support individual's goals in retirement. If we can be of any assistance, do not hesitate to reach out.

Searching For The Goldilocks Economy?

At the risk of slowing economic growth, the Fed has driven short-term rates higher to rein in inflation. But it’s a tricky proposition.
Raise rates too much, and you may trigger a recession. Don’t raise rates enough, and you won’t be able to restore price stability. The Fed is looking for a Goldilocks moment when its monetary policy is “just right” to create a soft landing for the economy.

You may not have noticed, but early evidence shows inflation is starting to slow. I’m confident the Fed sees it, too. However, most people judge inflation by prices at the gas station and the grocery store, so inflation is genuine and painful until those prices trend lower.

But we still remain optimistic. History shows that economies and markets move in cycles, so we believe the current trend is healthy in the long term. We also think smart economists at the Fed are making difficult decisions following an extraordinary couple of years.

Our best days are ahead. We are excited for the second half of 2022 and expect things will look pretty different by year’s end. Meanwhile, we advise taking a step back from daily news for a while. As always, if you have any questions, we are here for you.
