Save Time (and Money!) is our theme for June. It springs from the fact that, despite all the “time-saving” options we have in the twenty-first century–online shopping being a common and prominent example–the number one lament expressed by clients and friends of Entrust is, “I just don’t have enough time. If only I had the time, I would…”
 
Not surprisingly, with way too much on the to-do list, paying attention to personal finances often slips to the bottom. A perfect illustration of this paradigm is the story of Jess, a client who is a highly successfully entrepreneur, owner of several businesses and mother of two elementary school-age daughters. Her husband has no interest in money so the success of the family finances rests on her shoulders. Jess realized it was time to seek professional guidance after she admitted to herself that they were inadvertently dissipating their money, because she just did not have the time to pay sufficient attention to personal finances.
 
To begin the process of getting her family’s financial life on track, we assisted Jess with three easy steps:
 
Step 1–Get organized a/k/a “Know what your financial situation is today.” Old-fashioned paper files, mint.com, or quicken.com can help you get and stay organized with a minimum of time and effort.
 
Step 2–Collaborate with your spouse so you both understand the state of your finances and can share in the commitment to your long-term financial strategy. Remember to take the Money Personality quiz, for added insight into how each of you makes decisions about money.
 
Step 3–Set and prioritize goals, complete with timelines and benchmarks for achieving them. Be certain to write down your intentions.
 
Within a few months of putting these steps into practice, Jess reported that it took less time than she anticipated to stay on track and, for the first time ever, she was thrilled with her financial “report card.” Money was already accumulating in their retirement and college-savings accounts. Contact us today, so you, too, can experience the thrill-factor of personal finances that are on track.

Investment Committee Updates
The end of the second quarter of 2017 will soon be here. That signals the production of Quarterly Performance Reports for Entrust clients. The commentary provided in the reports begins with a chart of basic asset classes and indicates how they performed over time, as per a representative index. This asset-class information provides a sketch of what types of securities are in or out of favor at the time of the report.
 
One task of our investment committee is to evaluate asset-class information and determine what proportion of each asset class belongs in our model portfolios. Determinations are based upon the risk clients are comfortable assuming, as they aim to reach their financial goals. We are currently assessing what changes (if any) need to be made to current asset allocations. Potential changes include the need to “trim” or “add to” a position in the allocation; this process is known as “re-balancing.”
 
We welcome a conversation with you, to explore strategies for saving you time, and money, as you aim to achieve all your financial goals.
