In 2013, I embarked on a new journey – this blog, Perspectives. Its objective is to provide insight into the financial markets and perspective on strategic wealth management issues. There is never a shortage of topics to share and I believe that the blog has been a great way to communicate with clients and friends in a timely manner. Enjoy!

2020 – Greater Clarity
by Shelly Appleton-Benko | January 9, 2020

Who remembers when journalist Barbara Walters anchored ABC’s newsmagazine 20/20? A pioneer in American broadcasting, Barbara hosted a variety of television shows over the years, including most recently, The View. Her signature phrase for over 15 years, “this is 20/20,” has recently trended on social media, complete with its own Saturday Night Live New Year’s Eve skit!

With 2020 now upon us, I would like to channel my inner journalist (I was a Communications Major, you know!) and release a monthly segment to create greater clarity (20/20 vision) in regards to your financial journey.

In addition to our other timely and topical blog pieces, I propose the following monthly topics, and invite you to read along. Should you have any other topics you would like covered, please let me know!
