Well, That's Behind Us. What Next?

Well, That's Behind Us. What's Next?

January 2, 2019

By Michael Moreland • Vice President Investments 

Queen Elizabeth II described 1992 as an annus horribilis -- a horrible year -- following a series of public disclosures of private behavior of members of the royal family.  This is an apt description of the 2018 markets -- not necessarily for the depths of the damage, but certainly for the breadth of it.  Stocks, bonds and real assets all fell victim to slowing global growth, rising interest rates and prospects for trade wars. 

Will this carry through to 2019?  Perhaps, but we don’t believe so.  Our case is set out in the attached Economic & Market Commentary, a quarterly outlook delivered to our Wealth Management clients. Please take time to read it, and let us know your reaction. 

And please, schedule an appointment to talk to us about your plans and how we can help keep you on track to achieve them. 

I will close with a simple Thank You for the confidence you show in Security National Bank and the services we offer.  We look forward to working with you in 2019 and beyond.
