The Show:

It’s easy to put our finances on autopilot as the year comes to an end but the 3rd and 4th quarter can be a great time to evaluate your portfolio and take action.

As we move into the second half of 2019, let’s lay out a list of items that you need to look over. It’s always easiest to utilize a financial advisor to walk you through each of these and help you decide what’s best for your goals, but this checklist will give you an overview of areas that can be adjusted before they end of the year.

Don Cash will also spend some time during this episode explaining why each of these items is important. By getting ahead of changes that are coming down or taxes that are looming next spring, you’ll be able to maximize your investments and keep you on the right track for retirement.

This episode of Your Money & Your Life will answer a listener question about what kind of returns you should be seeking in retirement investments, and we’ll close out the show by getting to know Don Cash a little more.
