Evolution: Constant Branching & Expansion

Evolution is changing the way we enjoy our music and movies and all of our audio and video encounters. The concept of “owning” itself is changing – we now share bikes, scooters, vacation homes, Uber and Lyft rides. Streaming is providing the music industry its biggest profits in a decade, and CD sales have fallen 80%, from roughly $450 million to $89 million, reports Rolling Stone. Tesla is manufacturing cars without CD players, and Ford and Toyota have recently followed.

Contemporary Home Design: Where Windows Can Be Walls

Building a Custom Home 101: Construction Contracts

Most of us do not spend our time planning out construction deals for new custom homes. So, when someone decides they want to build their dream home, most people begin the process at a disadvantage.

Grooming G2: Financial Firm's Succession Plan a Foundational Priority

Are Private Investments Appropriate For You?

The capital markets have been the most accessible means of generating wealth for savers throughout the last 100-plus years. Traditional equity and bond markets have afforded anyone with the ability to set aside money for the intermediate- and/or long-term the opportunity to generate returns in excess of whatever has been readily available to them via traditional banking products (i.e. savings accounts and CDs). These markets have permitted individuals to accumulate the trillions of dollars that currently reside within 401(k)s and IRAs. But with equity markets near an all-time high and long-term interest rates still historically low (and for other reasons alluded to below), investors are clamoring for returns that might not realistically be available to them throughout the next 10 years by way of a well diversified equity and/or bond portfolio. For many investors, private investments are now an option and, in many cases, part of the solution.
