Event Recap: Autism Speaks Walk – North Shore Walk 2017

Members of Strategic Wealth Partners (SWP), a Deerfield-based wealth management firm, joined nearly 1,000 others at New Trier’s Northfield campus on Sunday April 30th. SWP was honored to support the mission of Autism Speaks and serve as a corporate sponsor on Team Tyler, formed in honor of Tyler Savitz.

“It is always humbling to be a part of awareness and fundraising efforts like Autism Speaks. It’s a powerful reminder of everyday things that are taken for granted,” said Tom Buhrmann, a wealth advisor at SWP. “I have family and friends affected by this condition – it is wonderful to see so many people come out to support Autism Speaks.”

500,000 children with Autism will similarly become adults in the next 10 years and will lose the school and public support that was available during childhood. Those individuals will need housing, jobs and community support, which is currently incapable of meeting the coming demand for services. Autism Speaks is working to increase awareness, advocate for the rights of these individuals and provide research and support to change the future for all those living with Autism.

However, today technology has made it possible to take a much more impactful approach through ESG investing.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?
There’s no sugarcoating it; the current state of the markets has many of our clients thinking like the 1981 punk rock classic by The Clash: Should I stay or should I go now? If I go, there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know Should I stay or should I go?* I don’t suspect that the song was meant as a commentary on portfolio management strategies. (In fact, the band has never disclosed any real meaning to the lyrics.)  Nonetheless, I do think it provides an appropriate framework for examining today’s investment world. So, let’s take a look at the cases for “going” and for “staying.”
