• Our outlook on the economy and the potential impact on your portfolio in the coming year
• Factors you should be aware of, such as equity rotation and potential rate cuts by the Fed
• The long-term trends that are having a constructive impact on the markets
• Specific thoughts on the core asset classes that comprise many investor portfolios
• And how we can work together to implement our best thinking in support of pursuing your goals
