Today I attended a “Lunch and Learn” hosted by Jim and Bonnie Bell of Bell Investment Advisors in Oakland. The presentation was packed full of supporting reasons for the idea that our economy of yesteryear has passed and will not return for some time. Marivic Hammond of Bell Investments did a fabulous job presenting her points on the “new normal of investing”. While most of the presentation focused on the stock market, equities and bonds, there was a discussion about interest rates and it matched what I have learned in the past and posted to this blog. It was very interesting to see how the Bell Team has positioned itself for the current cycle.
Three take aways that Marivic left with me are as follows:
- Lower Interest rates for an extended time period
- Higher Unemployment overall
- More Government regulations
Email or call with your comments. I am always interested in an intelligent discussion around the state of our economy and how we may position ourselves for the future.
Continued Success, Pete
