Throughout your lifetime, you’ll plan for many critical personal and professional milestones: building your own business, funding college for your children or grandchildren, living out your retirement years in style, supporting philanthropic commitments and finally passing on your wealth to your chosen heirs.  All of these could pose a significant challenge too complicated to manage on your own. Addressing life’s wealth planning challenges and helping you make appropriate choices is my commitment to you and all my clients.

Instead, gains are likely to be more modest. In entering the new year, he recommends lightening up on US stocks while increasing allocations to European and Japanese stocks. He also suggests getting out of high yield bonds, which he thinks have peaked for the cycle, and allocating the funds to short-term bonds, whose yields are on the rise

    “India's Multi-Trillion-Dollar Digital Opportunity” A digitization drive is under way in India that could have a large impact on stock returns, financial sector dynamics, consumption growth and e-commerce.
