“How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case.”– ROBERT G. ALLEN
A Safe Bet?
Investors often seek “safe” investments during times of uncertainty. Yet, too much safety can actually put your wealth at risk. Empirical evidence shows that a diversified portfolio with a commitment to the stock market best helps investors meet their long-term goals while keeping up with inflation. That’s one of the reasons why at Heritage, we’ve been focused on return and risk for over 25 years.
Heritage continues to support charities in our communities. In the first quarter, we will participate in Bowl Bash 2020, the Pompano Beach Exchange Club’s annual fundraiser. We will also sponsor Kart 4 Kids, a pro/am kart race to raise funds for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.
A Resolution Worth Keeping
By February of a New Year, 80% of people have given up on their resolutions. One important resolution to consider is an annual review of your investment plan. Now is a perfect time to work with your existing investment advisor, or find a qualified professional, to make sure your financial plan is up to date and that your goals are achievable. That’s a resolution worth keeping.
