Invest a Lump Sum Now or Average In?

When clients receive a large lump sum of cash, such as from a pension payout, bonus or asset sale, historical evidence suggests that the best decision is to invest the sum all at once according to an investor's asset allocation plan. Many investors nevertheless choose to put the money to work over time, hopefully using a systematic implementation. This research article from Vanguard explores the costs and benefits of both strategies to help guide what is a frequent decision faced by our clients.

Time for a Medicare Check-Up

Time for a Medicare Check-Up

The article "Now is the time for an annual Medicare check-up" from Goodcare.com provides a valuable reminder to take advantage of the upcoming open enrollment period for Medicare. The temptation with all insurance is to “set it and forget it”.  With medical insurance, it is especially important to adjust your health insurance as your health evolves.  The upcoming enrollment period which opens on October 15 is a great opportunity to review your coverage.  Those of you who haven’t reached age 65 aren’t off the hook for this.  Many of your employers also have open enrollment periods approaching before the end of the year so a review of your coverage is also a good idea.  As always, please let us know how we can help.
