Vaccine-led Restart The new nominal theme which flags a more muted response in nominal government bond yields to rising inflation than in the past has played out since last year. Inflation-adjusted yields, or real yields, have fallen further into negative territory as a result. Additional fiscal spending could turbocharge a vaccine-led economic restart later this year one that we believe may exceed market expectations. Activity in many services sectors is already compressed with less room to decline further. Businesses have also adapted to an environment of social distancing, allowing operations to continue. Consensus expectations of the size of the shock have been revised down materially, particularly for the euro area. Vaccine rollouts are likely to stoke a sharper-than-anticipated rebound. A Different Shock We see pent-up demand in contact-intense services rebounding sharply once restrictions lift in the U.S. and euro area as seen in China, and supported by the accumulation in

After the most recent interest rate increase in June, the Federal Reserve has signaled that it is likely to continue raising interest rates this year, possibly even as often as once per quarter. In fact, fear that interest rates may rise faster than previously predicted has caused some volatility in the markets. Bond investors have been concerned about this for years, but this time it looks like its going to happen. Warren Buffet said, in his latest shareholder letter, that Often, high-grade bonds in an investment portfolio increase its risk. That can be true, but then, we dont all have Warren Buffets net worth to fall back on! That may have you wondering how can I take advantage of rising interest rates?

In our increasingly complex financial world, its important to discuss the need to have an overall coordinated approach when it comes to financial affairs. Think of 11 players going onto the football field, and hiking the ball without taking the time to get into a huddle and have the quarterback call the play. The chances of these guys getting into the end zone are slim. Without overall coordination of your financial affairs, getting into the financial end zone may be difficult for you as well. Most people dont think of all their advisors as a team, but its important to recognize that most of us already have a financial team; we are getting financial advice from a variety of sources. Your financial team is comprised of your different insurance agents, your CPA or tax preparer, your bank, any investment advisors with whom you are working, and your estate planning attorney. Everyone has a financial team, and they all need a Financial Quarterback. Lets look at some potential pitfalls of

Every new administration brings new challenges and new opportunities. Six months into the Trump Administration, there hasnt been as much movement as we might have thought, but there are still some smart strategies you should keep in mind. First up, taxes. President Trump officially released his latest tax proposal in April. In it, he made a lot of suggestions. For example, hes suggesting a cut in the corporate tax rate, from 35% to 15%, and pass-through entities like corporations and LLCs would also qualify for the 15% tax rate. Hes also suggesting doubling the standard deduction, and reducing the number of tax brackets from 7 to 3 10%, 25%, and 35%. Hes also suggesting eliminating the federal estate tax, repealing the alternative minimum tax, and Net Investment Income Tax. In terms of repealing and replacing Obamacare, another major campaign promise, The American Health Care Act(AHCA), was proposed in the House of Representatives on March 6th but failed to make it to a vote March
