Risk Management In Motion (May Update)

Posted by The Blueprint Team on 5/5/20 1:42 PM

Clients and partners of Blueprint know how much we value communication and transparency. We are not shy about being transparent (some would say to a fault), from putting our exact investment rules on our website to explaining in detail how these rules work. One thing that we (and the world) are learning in 2020 is that despite how we miss interacting with our clients, friends, and partners in person, we can still add value and communicate effectively through a variety of other, tech-driven mediums. Case in point: as of December 2019, the number of free and paid Zoom meeting participants was 10 million; today, it's 300 million!

Advisors Can Flatten the Emotion Curve

Posted by Brandon Langley on 3/26/20 10:22 AM

What incredible times we are living through right now.  About six weeks ago here in the United States all seemed quiet and strong.  Of course, there are always problems, but by comparison to today, things were positive.  Boy, that seems like a long time ago.

Regardless of how this coronavirus pandemic plays out, the lesson we can already take from this is that…you just never know.  No matter how good things seem and no matter how long the fun ride has lasted, it always comes to an end, and usually when we least expect it.  The movie Cocktail, starring Tom Cruise, brings us Flanagan’s Law, “All things end badly or else they wouldn’t end.”
