Dear Investor´╗┐,

With the New Year comes new beginnings, new goals, new challenges, new friendships, and new opportunities. 2021 was an incredible year for the economy and investors, but to us the future remains bright for 2022 and beyond.
Let’s take a look back at 2021. Our economy is on track for over 5% growth for the year, which could end up being the best year for economic growth since the early 1980s. The dual tailwinds of fiscal stimulus and monetary policy helped steady the economy as it dealt with historic supply shortages, record inflation, employment shortages, and the pandemic. Looking to 2022, as the U.S. economy moves to more mid-cycle, 4.0-4.5% gross domestic product (GDP) growth is quite likely. This isn’t as strong as 2021, but would still be much better than recent years.

Financial Planning Tip of the Month

Maxing Out Your Yearly IRA Contribution
If you do one thing with your financial plan on an annual basis, we would recommend maxing out your IRA. Depending on your income and tax filing status, it may make sense to fund a Traditional or Roth IRA.
Schedule a consultation with us to develop an IRA maxing or backdoor Roth strategy.
