Fall 2012: The Power of Our Vote

By the time you read this, the 2012 elections will be just weeks away. And we’ll probably all be exhausted by the endless speeches, promises, falsehoods, mudslinging, surveys and phone calls that characterize the election process in today’s America.

Summer 2012: The Importance of Stability

Longtime clients of Oxford Financial Partners are familiar with our approach to building retirement portfolios—set aside five years’ worth of your upcoming withdrawal needs into a Stability Bucket, then invest the remainder in a diversified Growth Bucket. As gains occur in the Growth Bucket, harvest those gains and use the resulting cash to refill the Stability Bucket. We are now in our third decade of guiding clients by this philosophy, and it continues to work no matter what the crisis of the day is.

Currently, the office of the President, along with a slight majority of the Senate, rest with the Democrats. The House is solidly Republican after a major shakeup in the midterm elections of 2010.

So, I challenged myself this past year to find more time for reading. This has resulted in a very large pile of mostly unread books, but I have big plans for them in 2012.
