Summer 2016 Newsletter

Hard to believe summer is here! These hot 100° days are intense; therefore stay inside where it’s cool and read this summer’s newsletter. Several clients were worried about the market, but when you read Jeff Townsend’s market commentary, it may make you feel a little bit better about the direction we’re headed. As always, we try to include relevant information on topics you may be interested in learning more about, such as Social Security, Investing, Taxes, Retirement Accounts, etc — check these new updates out in our Newsworthy Items column. Be sure to check out the Employee Spotlight as we welcome our newest team member, Christine McNutt. Another Townsend employee and Vice President of the company, Shawn Kelly, wrote an article on the “New Investment Guidance Rules: Regulatory Oversight” — if you’re interested in learning more about new regulations issued by the Department of Labor, we encourage you to read this short article. The final article in this issue talks about budgeting and all the tips and tricks to help you succeed. Townsend will be offering a Beginners Budgeting Course the end of August — be sure to check our website for more information; invitations will be mailed the beginning of August. As always, check out our Client Corner with pictures of all the fun activities clients participated in this past quarter and be sure not to miss Cayle’s Connection, which is filled with fun summer plans, including cool weather trips to Colorado’s beautiful mountains!

Spring 2016 Newsletter

Our Spring Newsletter is filled with some great news for you to read up on. The market has been causing several people to become anxious; however take a moment to read through Jeff Townsend’s market commentary and hopefully you’ll find some comfort in knowing a little more on the economic outlook and finding the US economy has a history of resiliency. As always we encourage our clients to call us whenever they are in doubt or would like to question something they read from the ever trusting internet source. In this issue we also touch on Estate Planning and the benefits of doing it correctly — your future heirs will thank you! Recently we’ve come across the topic of ‘downsizing’ and if that is the right option for you — not only is it the right option, but once you decide to downsize, should you rent or buy? In this article we weight out a lot of variables to help point you in the direction that will best serve you. The daunting task of downsizing is always one to think about; therefore outside of the article we provided you with a few tips and tricks to follow — hopefully you find them helpful.

The beginning of the year always seems to be a little slower than normal with our clients recovering from the holidays and getting back into the swing of their normal routines. But we are starting to pick back up with our events and activities — be sure to check out the client corner! We had a few fun trips snowshoeing with clients, Townsend volunteers helped to celebrate children’s birthdays and the Salvation Army’s Lambeth House and we also had a couple clients win a Zamboni ride prior to the Avalanche Game. We hope that you can participate in some of our upcoming events — be sure to check out the website! However if you happen to miss one of our events, but still hoping for that ‘date night’ or to try something new — check out Cayle’s Connections for different outdoor experiences, foods, festivals, theatre experiences and even free things to do around the city. If you do end up trying one of these events out, be sure to share with us your experience — we’d love to share with more clients what you thought.


Winter 2016 Newsletter

The market has frightened several people this quarter, therefore it’s important to read through the quarterly Market Commentary. As always we have included several Newsworthy items for you to take note of — these cover various topics that you may have interest in learning about; Trust Funds, Employment, Oil Outlooks, Long-Term Care and so much more. Next is the hot topic on Social Security and Medicare — our financial planning team here at Townsend spent some time letting you know about the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 which will ultimately affect Social Security and how you file for spousal benefits moving forward, be sure to read this brief article to take advantage of their strategies before filing. In addition to their Social Security strategies, our financial planners inform you on changes to the ever so complicated Medicare Premiums — if after reading you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

The holidays were a fun time for Townsend — we had several volunteer opportunities where we worked with the Salvation Army. Our Clients rang the bells one chilly December morning and then Jeff Townsend matched all that was donated for a grand total of $11,715.98 towards The Salvation Army. Thank you to our generous clients for their time! In addition to the bell ringing, we held a Toy Drive at our office and we received an overwhelming amount of toys for The Salvation Army to wrap for children’s Christmas presents – incredibly heartwarming to see our clients giving back to their community.

Moving into a new year can be a tricky transition for some; therefore be sure to read through our “Bright Ideas For a New Year” piece — start the new year off by trying something different! And as always, check out Cayle’s Connections for some fun new finds — outdoors, theatre, foods, upcoming festivals and so much more.
