We have a new face around the office. Anish Jha is a student at Emory University and will be interning with us this summer. We’re excited for this contribution!

Also- many of you use Investor360 to link outside accounts. The provider for that service changed earlier this month, meaning that you will need to re-link those accounts. Some helpful “How-to” videos are available here.

Many of you are aware that account aggregation, the tool that allows you to link outside financial accounts with Investor360, can be a very helpful tool.

We will provide more information and instructions soon.

Spring has sprung…for some. While warm temperatures cover Florida, many western states expect even more snow in what has been a record season. Regardless of the weather, we hope that you and your families are well.

Also, the markets and our office will be closed on Friday, April 7th in observance of Good Friday. To those who observe them, we wish a Happy Easter and Joyous Passover!

Difficult periods, like this one, are nothing new and we believe will continue to be temporary and necessary parts of a functioning market.
