Strategic Wealth Partners Hosts 4th Annual Women, Wealth & Wisdom: Your Prosperity Picture

More than 70 women gathered for our 4th Annual Women, Wealth & Wisdom luncheon at Northmoor Country Club in Highland Park in November. It was an honor to have Lisa Kueng from Invesco present ‘Your Prosperity Picture,’ an activity that she and Ellen Rogin developed based on their book, Picture Your Prosperity.

“Our goal has been to present new ideas to help you become centered and confident with the direction of your lives – financial and otherwise,” SWP Principal Ashley Bebeau, CFP®, explained. This past year, the ‘Your Prosperity Picture’ exercise allowed the attendees the opportunity to visualize the direction of their lives in a very tangible way.

The activity began with the attendees creating their vision by viewing a series of pictures and placing them on a board divided into four quadrants: more money, less money, sooner in life, and later in life. This exercise allowed the group to visualize their dreams and the direction of their personal and financial lives. With the vision defined, Kueng guided the guests through steps to help bring each picture into reality.

We are thankful to everyone who attended the event. We hope that it was an informative and insightful beginning to ‘Your Prosperity Picture.’

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.”
