Growth Strategies in China

China is continuing to be a great option for investors, and a great way to get some growth positions in your portfolio. Many investing professionals believe there is still more growth to come in China – and it’s growing from a large economy, which is a positive thing for investors.

The Chinese government is committed to reforms and to positive growth in their economy. Doug and his team believe that China is in good shape and will be for the forseeable future. If you have questions about how China might fit into your portfolio, or how to keep Chinese investments on your radar, please call our offices at 800-391-1118 and listen to the podcast to stay up to date about that part of the world and your investment options there.

Tax Planning is Essential

It is tax season, and we think it’s so important that you be aware of your tax strategies. There’s not much you can do about your 2014 taxes, but you can control your 2015 tax outcomes, and the time to start is now. Your tax planning is essential and you need to look ahead a few years, into the new codes, rules and changes coming in the next few years and preparing for those changes.

We believe that one of the most important things you can do for your financial health is hire a good CPA. By planning for taxes ahead of time with a tax professional, you can insulate yourself from high tax consequences or surprise tax bills.

There are so many great strategies out there and there are plenty of non-tax strategies for your investing. Look into your options for tax-free growth and income, and pay attention so that you can save more of your money for charities, family and retirement as you invest. For more information on this topic, listen to this week’s podcast here.

Emerging Market Spotlight

China, India and Japan are all energy importers, and will benefit hugely from the fall in oil prices. We think that these countries are important for investors to watch as we move forward in 2015.

We are especially excited about India, because it’s a growing market that is exporting young people to great colleges and India has great demographics and political leadership.

ETF ticker symbols to watch in India:

  • INDY
  • EPI
  • INDA

These are growth ideas, not income. We think it’s very wise to consider India and other emerging markets as possibilities for your portfolio, and we want you to be aware of market action and new opportunities. As always, if you have questions about your portfolio and what ETFs and strategies will work for you, please call our offices at 800-391-1118 for a personalized consultation.

Innovation in ETFs

Doug recently attended an ETF conference and came back with even more appreciation for the incredible innovation that we see in the ETF investing world.

Here are a few examples of amazing innovation in the Exchange Traded Fund world, and some great items to keep an eye on as the year progresses:

  • Hedged Currency ETFs (protects your investment from the effects of a strong U.S. dollar)
  • The ability to own ETFs in other currencies
  • Industry sector shares (such as biotech-only or internet-only)
  • Cyber-security ETF (ticker symbol example: HACK)
  • Actively-managed ETFs by world-class managers like Jeffrey Gundlach
