  2. April is Financial Literacy Month

    At Atlas Private Wealth Management, we believe that an informed client is an integral part of the financial planning process. We emphasize ongoing client education because most people are more comfortable making decisions if they understand the relevant facts and information.

    We understand that the financial planning needs of a young family just getting started and a couple living in retirement are very different. With that in mind, we asked our team of Wealth Management Advisors to provide some of their favorite articles for every stage of the financial journey: getting started, building wealth, retiring soon, recently retired, and living in retirement.

  3. Helpful Links

    Here you will find third party resources which are useful at any stage of your financial journey. Whether you are planning for college or navigating eldercare issues, these links are a great starting point. Have questions about the information shown?

  4. March 2017 Economic and Investment View

    Approaching the end of the first quarter of 2017, and the first stanza of the new Trump administration, it seems reasonable to review our 2017 outlook published earlier this year. Recent events and economic reports provide more optimism for the direction of the U.S. economy, but there are concerns that cannot be overlooked. We’ll examine just a few factors here.

  5. Roth IRA Conversions

    With the lure of tax-free distributions, Roth IRAs have become increasingly popular retirement savings vehicles. According to the 2016 Investment Company Fact Book, 20 million U.S. households (about 16.3%) owned Roth IRAs in 2015.

  7. Top 5 Things to Consider Prior to December 31st

    1. IRA REQUIRED MINIMUM DISTRIBUTIONS (RMDS)

    If you are over age 70 ½ and have money invested in a traditional or SEP IRA account, the IRS mandates that you begin taking distributions from your account. The IRS penalty for not taking the distribution can be punitive, and the rules are tricky, so be sure to speak to your Wealth Advisor regarding your RMD requirements.

  8. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND CAPITAL MARKET VIEWPOINTS – November 9, 2016

    Donald Trump’s victory in the Presidential election clearly went contrary to prior market expectations. However, the market’s reaction seems to be more muted than many commentators projected. This is good news for investors.

    In times like these, we have always believed it is best to work to separate personal emotions from our investment decision making and focus on identifiable opportunities rather than theoretical challenges.

  9. The Fed’s Decision to Hold Steady

    Holding Steady – Reactions from the Federal Reserve’s September 21st Meeting

    On Wednesday, September 21st, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the committee charged with setting the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy, met and decided to maintain their current policy by holding short-term interest rates steady. This decision did not come as much of a surprise in what has been a long, slow recovery from the Great Recession of December 2007 through June 2009. Although this tempered growth environment has seemingly become the norm, there was broad agreement in the meeting that economic conditions are improving. This has resulted in growing pressure within the Committee to raise rates sooner rather than later.

  10. Stock Market Averages Are Near All-time Highs. So Where Do We Go From Here?

    Stock Prices Tend to Follow Earnings Trends

    One of the fundamental assumptions about stock prices is that they follow the earnings (or profitability) trends of businesses. When earnings are heading up, stock prices tend to reflect that by moving higher. When earnings growth slows, or even moves backward, stock prices might be expected to follow suit. This can generally be seen over long time periods; however, over shorter time periods we have often seen distortions. Some market observers argue that we are currently in a period of market distortion. We’ll take a closer look and provide some observations.
