FORBES TOP-RANKED TEAM

People deserve to understand what’s happening with their money.

Have you ever sat across from a financial advisor and only understood every third word they were saying? And yet they were talking about your money, your life, and your future.

At GAAM Wealth Advisors, we believe clients should understand everything that is happening with their money; that advisors should be just as good about explaining investments as they are at making them.

First, we’re going to get to know you and discuss what’s most important to you. We’re going to figure out your goals and the outcomes you’d like to achieve with this money. We’ll do this by establishing your Family Index Number, which is the rate of return needed on your investments in order to pursue those outcomes. After we determine your Family Index Number, we allocate your money to our various investment strategies designed to help you pursue those goals.

We work with a wide variety of clients – everyone from high net worth investors to those who are just starting out. While each family gets a personalized allocation strategy, we’ve helped thousands of families navigate their complex financial needs and guided them through life’s major decisions.

As your trusted advisor, we’re focused on adding convenience and simplicity to your lives. We will make sure you’re educated on your investments and how we manage your money – as much or as little information as you’d like.

Whether you’re investing hundreds or millions, at GAAM Wealth Advisors we’re about much more than results – we’re about helping you understand where those results have come from and why the strategy works. If you’re tired of the mystery of investing and want to know exactly what’s happening with your money, schedule an appointment today.

Market Commentary
Weekly Market Commentary January 22, 2018

 

Global stock markets kept climbing last week. The S&P 500 rose 0.9% and is now up 5.1% this year. Global stocks climbed even more as the MSCI ACWI rose 1.1%. The Bloomberg BarCap Aggregate Bond Index slid 0.4% last week and is down 0.9% this year. Concerns over higher rates pushed bonds lower.   As of this writing, the U.S. Senate was unable to muster enough Democratic votes to avoid a government shutdown. Whether or not it is resolved by publication, we are not overly concerned. Past government shutdowns have had little effect on the stock market, and we do not expect this one to be different.

January Monthly Newsletter: Holiday Spending

If you’re like many Americans, the recently passed tax reform and the continuation of the current bull market may have given you the confidence to dig a little deeper into your pockets for holiday spending. Newly released sales data showed retailer’s holiday sales increased 4.9% when compared to last year; the best holiday sales season since 2011.[1] While that may be good news for the retail sector that has seen several recent store closures, it’s probably not great news for the average consumer.

  • Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

    Who knew tax reform could be so easy? Less than two weeks after going to conference, Republicans reconciled the differences between the House and Senate bills and released their final version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last Friday (12/14) afternoon.[1] The final legislation provides significant permanent tax cuts for businesses, including reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. Most individual taxpayers will also receive tax benefits, including lower marginal tax rates, and a reduction in the top tax rate for the wealthiest Americans from 39.6% down to 37%. However, all of the individual tax breaks will expire at the end of 2025 to comply with Senate rules. Read more
