Monthly Economic Update
 

    
October 2018
THE MONTH IN BRIEF

Wall Street maintained its optimism in September. While trade worries were top of mind for economists and investors overseas, bulls largely shrugged at the prospect of tariffs and the probability of another interest rate hike. The S&P 500 rose 0.43% for the month. On the whole, U.S. economic indicators were quite good, and some offered pleasant surprises.

 
What People Overlook When Shopping for Life Insurance
A few realities that must be acknowledged.
 
                            Provided by Bill Mann, AIF®


   
Shopping for life insurance means paying attention to detail. In scrutinizing these details, however, some fundamental, big-picture truths may be ignored.
  
If you want to renew or upgrade coverage later in life, the terms could be less than ideal. You may be healthier than most of your peers, you may have the constitution of someone half your age, but insurers base policy premiums and terms of coverage on actuarial norms, not exceptions. Purchase a term life policy at age 50, and your premiums may be considerably more expensive than if you had bought the same coverage at age 30. This is the way of the insurance business.

Debunking a Few Popular Retirement Myths
It seems high time to dispel some of these misconceptions.
 
Provided by Bill Mann, AIF®
  
  
Generalizations about money and retirement linger. Some have been around for decades, and some new clichés have recently joined their ranks. Let's examine a few.
    
"When I'm retired, I won't really have to invest anymore." Society still sees retirement as an end instead of a beginning - a finish line for a career. In reality, retirement is the start of a new and promising phase of life that could last a few decades. If you don't keep one or two feet in the investment markets (most notably the equities markets), you risk quickly losing purchasing power as even moderate inflation will devalue the dollars you've saved. Keep saving, keep earning, and keep investing.

    
 
Save & Invest Even if Money Is Tight
For millennials, today is the right time.

Provided by  Bill Mann,  AIF®

 
If you are under 30, you have likely heard that now is the ideal time to save and invest.
You know that the power of compound interest is on your side; you recognize the potential advantages of an early start.

There is only one problem: you do not earn enough money to invest. You are barely getting by as it is.

Regardless,
the saving and investing effort can still be made.
Even a minimal effort could have a meaningful impact later.

Preparing to Retire Single
Unmarrieds need to approach retirement planning pragmatically.

Provided by Bill Mann,  AIF®

                    

In an ideal world, it would be simple to prepare for a solo retirement.  

You would just save half as much as a couple saves, buy half as much insurance coverage, and expect to live on half the income. Reality dictates otherwise.
