The Impact of Rising Interest Rates
On December 14, the U.S. Federal Reserve Board (the Fed) raised its benchmark interest rate by 0.25%. The move reflects the Fed’s intention to return borrowing costs to more "normal" levels and stem future inflation, as the U.S. economy and job market continue to grow.

The Risk/Return Trade-Off
Over the long term, higher-risk investments, such as equities, have historically tended to outperform lower-risk investments, such as bonds and money market instruments.

Winter Vacation Ideas
Winter has settled in and the thermometer is going to be below zero for at least another month or two. If you haven’t gone on a vacation yet, start planning today.
