  • How to pick the right financial planner

    first_imgWhen it comes to financial planning, the first question that comes to mind for most people is whether or not they really need professional help. You can absolutely handle your own money and there is no problem with that, but it is much like doing your own repairs on a leaky sink. Some people have the knowhow to fix it, while others may need more than a plumber after they try and do it themselves. Fortunately, when it comes to your finances, there’s no risk of water damage.Now there is no substitute for financial education when it comes to your money, but having an expert advisor can help you meet your financial goals faster. Depending on your goals there are many different types of experts you could go to. Financial counselors, tax preparers, investment advisors and stockbrokers just to name a few. No matter who you decide would be most beneficial to help you achieve your financial goals, make sure you pick the right one. Here are some tips:1. Consider how they make their money – Depending on which type of advisor they are, how they get paid can tell you quite a bit about your potential future. Some make their money by selling you a specific product and others charge a percentage for assets under management.2. Look at all of their credentials – There are a good number of licenses and certifications that financial professionals can achieve. Make sure that they are legitimate and current by seeing who administers the designation and call to verify if it is valid.3. Get to know them – Personal finance can be taboo subject in polite company, and is often avoided in normal conversation. However, beyond how good they may be at their job, you have to get along with them to be comfortable enough to discuss sensitive and stressful talks about money.4. Look at their current clientele – Ask your potential advisor what kinds of clients they currently manage money for and whether they have similar assets to your own. If they are used to managing billionaires’ accounts, they may not know how best deal with yours.5. Understand fiduciary vs. suitability standards – Fiduciary means that the advisor has pledged to act in the client’s best interests at all time. Those who are not fiduciaries are often held to a lesser standard. Known as sustainability standard this means they just have to sell things that are suitable to you, not necessarily ideal 55SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: www.cuinsight.com Detailslast_img read more

  • Smith dazzles Wembley with quick win

    first_imgHarrow’s super-featherweight prospect Mitchell Smith enhanced his growing reputation by destroying Gavin Reid in the first round at Wembley Arena.Smith, roared on by more than 350 of his fans, floored his opponent with a cracking right and followed up with more heavy shots before the referee stepped in.It was another exciting performance by the 20-year-old and extended his record to 6-0.“In the training sessions I’ve done, I’ve been working on that shot,” Smith told West London Sport.“I punch hard when I follow through with shots and that’s what I did. I was surprised the ref let him carry on to be honest.“He [Reid] was game enough to get up and carry on. But I just swarmed all over him and the ref had to get him out of there.”Mitchell’s victory came before West Londoner Steve O’Meara overcame a nasty cut to beat Chas Symonds on points.Toms was unlucky to lose on points.Earlier in the evening, Wembley welterweight Gary Corcoran also maintained his unbeaten record, comfortably beating Tottenham’s Mark McKray on points.But there was a controversial defeat for Northolt’s Ryan Toms.The former southern area light-middleweight champion lost a points decision to John Thain despite the Scot suffering a broken nose and appearing to be soundly beaten.Toms told West London Sport: “He nicked a couple of rounds because he was so sharp with his jab.“But I hurt him to the body loads of times and his nose was battered. I thought I won the fight by at least three or four rounds.“I won the fight clearly. It wasn’t even close. But I can’t change that decision – it is what it is.”See also:O’Meara overcomes cuts to secure winTrio to feature on Wembley Arena billYTo4OntzOjk6IndpZGdldF9pZCI7czoyMDoid3lzaWphLW5sLTEzNTI0NjE4NjkiO3M6NToibGlzdHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MToiMyI7fXM6MTA6Imxpc3RzX25hbWUiO2E6MTp7aTozO3M6MjI6Ildlc3QgTG9uZG9uIFNwb3J0IGxpc3QiO31zOjEyOiJhdXRvcmVnaXN0ZXIiO3M6MTc6Im5vdF9hdXRvX3JlZ2lzdGVyIjtzOjEyOiJsYWJlbHN3aXRoaW4iO3M6MTM6ImxhYmVsc193aXRoaW4iO3M6Njoic3VibWl0IjtzOjMzOiJTdWJzY3JpYmUgdG8gb3VyIGRhaWx5IG5ld3NsZXR0ZXIiO3M6Nzoic3VjY2VzcyI7czoyODM6IlRoYW5rIHlvdSEgUGxlYXNlIGNoZWNrIHlvdXIgaW5ib3ggaW4gb3JkZXIgdG8gY29uZmlybSB5b3VyIHN1YnNjcmlwdGlvbi4gSWYgeW91IGRvbid0IHNlZSBhbiBlLW1haWwgZnJvbSB1cywgY2hlY2sgeW91ciBzcGFtIGZvbGRlci4gSWYgeW91IHN0aWxsIGhhdmVuJ3QgcmVjZWl2ZWQgYSBjb25maXJtYXRpb24gbWVzc2FnZSwgcGxlYXNlIGUtbWFpbCBmZWVkYmFja0B3ZXN0bG9uZG9uc3BvcnQuY29tIGFuZCB0ZWxsIHVzIHlvdSB3aXNoIHRvIHN1YnNjcmliZSB0byBvdXIgbmV3c2xldHRlci4iO3M6MTI6ImN1c3RvbWZpZWxkcyI7YToxOntzOjU6ImVtYWlsIjthOjE6e3M6NToibGFiZWwiO3M6NToiRW1haWwiO319fQ== Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

  • Kurtenbach: Three thoughts on the Warriors’ three draft picks

    first_imgOAKLAND — You could look at the Warriors’ draft as a no-win scenario. You could also, conversely, view it as a no-lose scenario.Either way, given Golden State’s roster predicament, this draft carried more importance than any other in the Steve Kerr era. And in it, the Warriors clearly tried to strike a balance between immediate need — the Dubs need bodies — and future potential. It was high floors vs. high ceilings.CLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the video on a mobile device …last_img read more

  • Indian shooters end campaign on a disappointing note

    first_imgThe final day of the Olympic shooting competition failed to add any medals to India’s tally of a silver and a bronze as Gagan Narang, Sanjeev Rajput and Manavjit Singh Sandhu failed to qualify for the finals in their respective events at the Royal Artillery Barracks on Monday.Narang, who won the bronze in the 10m air rifle last week, finished 20th in the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions event while Rajput finished 26th. Only the top eight shooters make the final.Narang was initially in the lead with a score of 398/400 in the prone stage, but a shocking 377, including series of 90, 94 and 96, in the standing stage put paid to his chances. He recovered to score 389 in the kneeling stage, but it wasn’t enough to bring him back up the table. Rajput shot 395, 378 and 388 for a total of 1161/1200.Italian Niccolo Campriani won the gold while South Korea’s Kim Jong-hyun took the silver and American Matthew Emmons the bronze.Over on the outdoor shotgun ranges, Sandhu was left to rue a poor third round of 22 that he shot on Sunday as he finished with 119 out of 125 points, ending up 16th out of 34 shooters.Two-time champion Australian Michael Diamond shot an Olympic record 125 in the qualification stage but still lost out on the medals. Giovanni Cernogoraz of Croatia bagged gold.last_img read more

  • Receiver spurns Gators for Bucks

    The recruitment experience for James Louis was an interesting one. The heralded 5-foot-11-inch, 180-pound wide receiver out of Delray Beach, Fla., may have donned an Ohio State hat on signing day, but seven months earlier, Louis was all set to become a Florida Gator. “When Louis got the idea that he wasn’t one of their top recruits, he basically turned around and committed to Ohio State right away,” said Steve Helwagen of Bucknuts.com. “It let a lot people wondering if Louis would sign with Ohio State.”After months of speculation and a last-minute recruitment effort by Florida, Louis, wearing a red shirt to his signing-day press conference, stayed true to his commitment and signed with the Buckeyes. Louis is a two-time All-State receiver and had 38 catches, 682 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior for Atlantic High School. He was ranked as the No. 12 receiver and No. 80 overall player in the ESPN 150 recruit rankings.Louis headlines a solid receiver class along with Corey Brown and Tyrone Williams for the Buckeyes.  “What is neat is that Ohio State got three different types of receivers to fill their needs going forward,” Helwagen said. “Williams would be a split-end, Louis would be a flanker, and Brown is probably a slot receiver.”Helwagen and Kevin Noon, managing editor of Buckeyegrove.com, said Louis reminds them of former Buckeye wideout Santonio Holmes, who also hailed from the South Florida area. “They have similar build, above-average speed and do everything really well,” Helwagen said.“The one difference is that James Louis is playing a step faster than what Holmes was coming out high school,” Noon said.Louis, who was also a 2010 Under Armour High School All-American, is regarded as an all-around receiver who can do a lot of everything. He is said to have good feet and great acceleration, as well as a nice frame to allow him to get stronger and add weight without losing his speed.“He will be a factor as soon as he is able to reach the field,” Noon said. Helwagen said that after Devier Posey and Dane Sanzenbacher, there is no certainty on the receiving depth chart, meaning Louis might have a chance to make an impact right away. “You get beyond those two guys, and it gets completely wide open for who will be the three, four or five receiver.” Helwagen said. “There are five or six guys that could step in and compete for those spots. It’s going to be tremendous to see in the fall who gets to play and if Louis can show the coaches he can do something in the offense, they’ll use him.”When asked about the possibility of redshirting Louis next season, Noon said he doubted that would be the case. “You never know when it comes to a redshirt,” Noon said. “But if I were a betting man, I would say he does not redshirt.”While OSU may not have been Louis’ first choice, the fact he stayed true to his commitment to the Buckeyes after switching from Florida should be reaffirming for Buckeye fans.If Louis is able to follow in the footsteps of Santonio Holmes by leaving Florida and finding success in Columbus, then the outlook should be bright for the Buckeyes. read more

  • Work Permit Rules To Be Adhered To

    first_img Two boys die, bicycle and van collide in St. Catherine, Jamaica Bahamas DPM Turnquest, as IDB Governor, Talks Technology and Climate Change Resilience at IDB Conclave Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppMONTEGO BAY, April 26 (JIS): Minister of Agriculture, Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, has reiterated the Government’s stance on the issuing of work permits to foreigners to work in Jamaica.Addressing a ground breaking event for the launch of the Melia Braco Village in Trelawny on April 24, Minister Kellier said the Government will be unrelenting in its efforts to ensure that work permits are issued based on the guidelines governing the system.He said in issuing work permits, priority will be given to protecting the employment of Jamaican workers and will only be issued foreigners in cases where they are absolutely necessary.“The Ministry administers a rigorous work permit regime…(and)… when gaps arise in the availability of local skills for foreign investment initiatives, if we are not to frustrate the progress of these projects, then such skill gaps will have to be filled by workers from elsewhere,” Minister Kellier said.He noted further that the Government recognizes that the best way to ensure Jamaican workers are given priority treatment during the recruitment of workers is to create the necessary platforms for high level training for those persons.He added that his Ministry is in dialogue with a number of training agencies, with a view of ensuring that Jamaican workers receive the highest level training which will equip them for employment.“We are also working closely with HEART/NTA and Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) to identify the skills that are needed and to train our workforce… (and make them) ready for employment in investment projects,” Mr. Kellier said.Meanwhile, on the matter of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security’s Workers Passport initiative, Mr. Kellier is encouraging the management of the Melia Braco Village to work with the Ministry in using the construction site as a pilot for that project.Minister Kellier, in admitting that the legislation to implement the workers passport is yet to be passed in Parliament, said the Melia Braco Village site would be a good place to start.“These passports will be the first step in guaranteeing that workers are competent and equipped to operate safely on work sites in both international and local markets. And while I know that this initiative is still in the early stages of development and the legislation is pending….our team will be working assiduously with Melia to explore the possibility in incorporating the workers passport as a pilot on this Braco site by the contractors,” he stated.Under a 15 year lease management agreement with the Government through the National Insurance Fund (NIF),Melia Resorts, a Spanish-based company, will be operating the former Braco Village Resort in Trelawny.The resort will become known as the Melia Braco Village, with 250 new rooms being added to the existing 225. The property is scheduled for opening in December 2015.
