Expand Your View Point [With These Financial Experts]

by Financial Design Studio, Inc. / April 4, 2019

You can physically only be in one place at a time. Now, we know there are some of you out there who think of the state lines or country borders where if you straddle them you are actually in two places at one time! Ok, we will give you that! The point we are making is that you cannot be here in the U.S., and overseas in another country, physically, at the same time. So, what does that have to do with your investments?

Since we have physical limitations, but need to have insight from other places, how do we solve this?

From an investing point of view, we need to be aware of all that’s happening around the world and for this we look to experts in those areas to stay apprised of their insight. Here is a list of some people we like to follow and a link to a recent article from them. We also appreciate that each of these voices have a different way of expressing their views; some share in writing and charts and others in story and interviewing.

For the U.S. Domestic and broad macroeconomic picture:

1. Liz Ann Sonders, Senior Vice President, Chief Investment Strategist, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc

2. Jim Cramer is the host of CNBC’s Mad Money and a co-founder of TheStreet, Inc.

3. Jeremy Seigel, Wharton finance professor

4. Brian Westbury, FirstTrust Advisor

For International insight:

Jeffrey Kleintop, CFA, Senior Vice President, Chief Global Investment Strategist

These are just a few people we like to follow for insight that helps to shape our thoughts for investing. We thought you might like to see our list of who we follow to gain further insight to pair with our thoughts and observations.
