Dean A. Billman

For me, retirement planning means more than providing my clients with investment advice. It means helping them maintain the financial independence they’ve worked their whole lives to achieve. It means striving to ensure they have the means to pursue what’s most important to them. And it means understanding them as people with unique goals, values and circumstances that determine the strategies I develop on their behalf.

My consultative process begins with an in-depth discussion of your current finances and future objectives. We’ll address issues you might have overlooked that can have a significant impact on your ability to retire as planned. Finally, we’ll determine how we can help you adjust your investment strategy as necessary to accommodate changing conditions and meet any unforeseen expenses and income demands that may arise during retirement.

    “Enjoy the Ride” Michael Wilson, chief investment officer of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management and Morgan Stanley & Co., observes that sometimes the investment environment may feel both boring in the present and unsettling in the context of future uncertainty. From either perspective, the fundamentals can support a global equity market rally, so hang on and enjoy the ride. 

    “Why We Differ on Japan” Morgan Stanley & Co.’s strategists and economists are more bullish than the Wall Street consensus on both the Japanese economy and Japanese equities. In this report, they explain why. 

    • “The Time Is Right for Long-Lagging Industrials” Rising oil prices, a weaker US dollar, hurricane rebuilding, possible tax reform and a potential infrastructure program brighten the outlook for industrials.

    • Plus, look for more on the economy, bonds and private market investments, as well as a Q&A featuring Jeffrey Gundlach of DoubleLine Capital, who argues that the bull market in fixed income securities is fading.
