If you are new to investing, you probably have quite a few questions. One of the most common is, “how much do I have to pay someone to manage my investments?” This can actually be more complicated than you might anticipate, because there are three main types of investment managers, and each type has a different fee structure.
The FIDUCIARY Rule. Currently in the news, it has been the Standard at CORDA since we were founded. As Kim Deutsch posted on the CORDA website in April 2016, CORDA has always acted as a fiduciary in managing retirement assets, as well all non-retirement and taxable savings entrusted to us. This fiduciary rule, to keep our clients’ interests first, has been our standard at CORDA all along. As an Registered Investment Advisor, CORDA abides by the highest standard of care set by the SEC which requires we act in our clients’ best interests.
China’s 1.4 billion people are building up an appetite that is changing the way the world grows and sells food. The Chinese diet is becoming more like that of the average American, forcing companies to scour the planet for everything from bacon to bananas.
But China’s efforts to buy or lease agricultural land in developing nations show that building farms and ranches abroad won’t be enough. Ballooning populations in Asia, Africa and South America will add another 2 billion people within a generation and they too will need more food.
I love Memorial Park. I recently moved to a much more urban neighborhood than where I previously lived and I have rediscovered this gem! At 6:30 in the morning, there is a whole city at Memorial Park – people and dogs of all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities. On a recent morning, I saw marathon runners, an ex-Secretary of State and his wife, an elderly gentleman with a walker being encouraged by an equally elderly best friend as well as moms pushing strollers and those like me, an empty nester just trying to keep some of those unwanted pounds off. There is encouragement simply in the numbers and the diversity.
