Five retirement lessons from today's retirees

Written by Forefielf

Each year for its Retirement Confidence Survey, the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) surveys 1,000 workers and 1,000 retirees to assess how confident they are in their ability to afford a comfortable retirement. Once again, in 2019, retirees expressed stronger confidence than workers: 82% of retirees reported feeling "very" or "somewhat" confident, compared with 67% of workers.

We may prefer swimming over running, or broccoli to brussels sprouts, but like our preferences for improving personal health, we also make choices for the types of businesses we support through our investing habits. When it comes to investing, incorporating environmental, social, and governance-focused investments may be healthy for you and your portfolio.

Market outlook -- July 2019

Written by The Rehmann Team

Economy During the second quarter, global central banks shifted towards increased accommodation against rising geopolitical risks, prolonged trade disputes, slowing growth and below-target inflation. The Federal Reserve appears poised to cut the federal funds rate while the European Central Bank (ECB) has indicated a willingness to increase monetary stimulus. The potential for future rates cuts benefited fixed income assets as the market values of bonds carry an inverse relationship to the level with interest rates. Equity markets also rallied as central bankers signaled their collective intent to prolong the current economic expansion...
