The Women’s Center Anniversary Luncheon: Your Voice Has Power

Members of Strategic Wealth Partners are proud to have attended The Women’s Center Anniversary Luncheon, raising awareness and support for sexual assault survivors. Kathy Klein, CFP® has been longtime supporters of The Women’s Center – a significant women and family shelter in southeastern Wisconsin.

Klein knew she had to support this organization after attending a fundraiser in 2007. “I learned that the organization received requests for help from approximately 2,000 families annually – which was just astounding to me,” Klein explained. “Domestic abuse knows no socioeconomic or ethnic boundaries and can permanently scar all members of a family with deep psychological wounds. The work The Women’s Center is doing is impactful and life changing!”

The Women’s Center is located in Waukesha, WI and provides safety, shelter, and support to adult and child survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and trafficking.

Still, there is no shortage of “experts” – supported by research, sophisticated models, and persuasive reasoning – that routinely broadcast what’s in store for the next twelve months. The harsh reality: it’s fool’s gold – entertaining but rarely actionable.

A Closer Look at Private Markets
As you are likely aware, ongoing volatility and rising interest rates made 2022 a very challenging year in the capital markets.
