In 2018, we launched our new Client Portal which puts portfolio information at your fingertips. This tool is designed to augment our advisors’ efforts to give you greater access and transparency on progress toward your goals.
The portal provides secure, real-time information on your portfolio data, asset allocation, and investment holdings. It also offers a document vault for streamlined document sharing with your advisor and other trusted professionals without compromising your privacy or security.
Here are some sample views of the portal, showing a preview of the information available in real time:
If you have not yet activated your Client Portal account, we encourage you to speak with our team for instructions on how to do this so that you can begin accessing on-demand data for your portfolio(s) and uploading important documents.
How can I access the portal?
The Client Portal is accessible via the “Client Login” button at the top of our website. Once you have activated your new portal account, you’ll be able to log in anytime to view materials and real-time data. We are happy to offer an overview of the portal to help you get started.
Will my preferred delivery method change?
Activating your portal account will not change your delivery method. You will continue to receive documents from Litman Gregory using your preferred delivery method; electronic or US mail. If you currently receive documents by US mail and would like to enroll in electronic delivery, feel free to reach out to your team or simply reply to this email.
How can I access historical documents?
All documents that had been uploaded to our previous client portal accounts have been archived. If you need a copy of any past document, including those you may have uploaded, please reach out to our team.
Our technology strategy is centered around interaction, access and convenience.
Our dedication to your peace of mind is absolute and extends across the entire team. We continue to enhance our digital capabilities to offer new ways for you to access your portfolio information, exchange secure documents with us, and connect with your Litman Gregory team.
More recently, we began offering video conference meetings by request. When an in-person meeting isn’t an option, consider scheduling a video conference with your advisor. Going this route allows you to continue to receive the same high-level of service from a location that is convenient for you.
Managing Risks as Uncertainty Continues
There is wide range of potential outcomes for global economies and markets, but we’ve seen recession risks rise recently. We are making incremental adjustments to our clients’ portfolios, such as adding more to “safe haven” bonds like Treasuries.
Capital One Data Breach and Cybersecurity
While the Capital One data breach is not the first of its kind, it is noteworthy in its scale: nearly 106 million of the bank’s customer and applicant accounts were affected. These occurrences remind us of the importance of taking proactive steps to safeguard our personal and financial information. In this post, we outline actions to consider taking to protect your personal data and accounts.
Investment Key Takeaways—Second Quarter 2019
After global stock markets got a jump start on the year thanks to progress in U.S.-China trade negotiations and a newly “patient” Fed, an abrupt breakdown in the trade talks spurred a sharp market sell-off in May. But stock markets rebounded in June with expectations of Fed rate cuts later in the year and (tentative) signs of re-engagement on the U.S.-China trade front.
