It’s sometimes necessary to talk about topics that are not exactly financial planning related but are very much a part of securing a safe future for people and their families. One of these topics is guardianship and custody of children.

Now, this isn’t an issue that you’d bring up at convivial. It’s sombre, and sobering. It’s something people tend to keep on the back burner.

The S&P 500 is a market-weighted index, reflecting the largest 500 stocks (large-cap) in the US. It is the index that most professional investors measure their performance against. If we review the S&P 500 performance during 2020, and taking into consideration the market crash that took place in the first quarter of 2020, the S&P 500 ended the year on 16.26% growth, an amazing year given the drop off it had in Q1.
