July Financial Planning News Roundup
Welcome to the Summer edition of the Davis Financial Group’s newsletter, The Navigator. This edition represents a departure from past issues which were more focused on the impact of Covid on the financial markets and featured regular updates by our Chief Financial Officer Daken Vanderburg. His updates are now less frequent, and we will feature them as they roll off the press, but we are turning to a more normalized environment and now feature our roundup of news and views from the financial and popular press as they impact the main areas of financial planning.
In this edition we feature 6 articles on a range of these topics:
