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How can I access historical documents?
All documents that had been uploaded to our previous client portal accounts have been archived.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.
Our Perspective and Strategy During Turbulent Times
It’s been a difficult year, to say the least. As September comes to a close, we’ve weathered a disappointing month in the financial markets after a relatively benign August and a strong July. As is the case in any bear market, investors are braced for more to come. In this post we provide a summary on the forces that brought us here, how we’re responding, and what to expect going forward.
With Inflation Rising, Why Have Inflation-Protected Bonds Declined?
As the outlook for inflation turned less “transitory,” treasury inflation-protected securities became interesting to many investors. But these bonds have shown they aren’t immune to broader bond market declines, leaving investors to wonder, “How can my inflation-protected bonds be down when inflation is on the rise?” In this post we explain how these bonds are impacted by different market variables, including inflation, and why we believe they still deserve a place in our client portfolios.
I Savings Bonds Currently Offer a Generous Yield
With current yields over 9%, Series I Savings Bonds seem to offer a "free lunch". These bonds are issued by the U.S. Government and pay interest linked to current inflation rates, making them an attractive option for most savers and investors.
