How to Boost Your Financial Confidence, According to a Fintech VP http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/how-to-boost-your-financial-confidence-according-to-a-fintech-vp/ Fri, 21 Jan 2022 16:56:04 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/how-to-boost-your-financial-confidence-according-to-a-fintech-vp/

The past few years have had a huge impact on everyone’s finances. The pandemic may have forced people into situations where they’re spending less and have more money to invest in things like paying off debt — and some of those habits may have stuck.

Despite this, data from Finfit, a financial wellness platform, suggests that some Americans have experienced a decline in financial confidence. In 2021, only 19% of respondents said they were very confident in their ability to achieve their long-term financial goals. This number is down from 26% in 2020.

“Financial uncertainty leads to increased stress, which has many negative consequences for health and work performance,” said Charles Lattimer, vice president of growth and innovation at Finfit.

Select asked Lattimer what people can do to increase their confidence when it comes to managing their money. Here’s what he shared.

How to boost your financial confidence

According to Lattimer, four steps are essential to feeling more secure and confident when it comes to managing your money.

“First, you need to start working towards a goal. Then, you need to know exactly what you need to do to achieve those goals. Next, you need to make sure all the right tools are readily available, and finally, you have to act,” he told Select.

Define aims

Thinking about what you want to accomplish can be both exciting and motivating, which is why setting specific goals can be an effective way to promote growth in any area of ​​life, not just your finances. . At the same time, however, setting goals can feel daunting because we can be afraid of failing and feel like we’ve failed.

Don’t just think of your goals as something you can That is to reach or not to reach; instead, think of your financial goals as a vision that guides a series of intentional and meaningful next steps. Even if you’re a little short of your goal, you’ll still find yourself in a better position than when you started if you’ve worked hard to take the right steps.

When setting goals, you should also try to avoid creating goals that are too extreme. It can be easy to feel like you need to achieve all of your financial goals at the same time – to maximize your retirement contributions and pay off thousands of dollars in debt at the same time. But setting goals that are probably beyond your current reach can actually be daunting.

Instead, think about goals that are more achievable based on your current situation. Even if these goals seem very small at first, like saving $50 a month, they will still help you develop healthy financial habits that you can maintain for the long term.

Know how to achieve the goals you have set for yourself

Once you’ve set a financial goal, it’s important to visualize the steps that will help you move toward that goal. This is where a financial planner can come in.

While having an ongoing relationship with a finance professional isn’t for everyone, you can certainly benefit from at least an initial consultation with a finance professional.

After taking an overview of your financial profile, a financial planner may be able to tell you which steps you should prioritize – and they can also discuss specific ways to help you work on those steps. And, they can also provide insights and options that haven’t even crossed your mind yet.

Zoe Financial is a platform that can put you in touch with a list of professionals specializing in your concerns. Another option is to use PlannerSearch.org to find a professional in your state. It will give you a list of CFPs near you, and you can also filter by specialties such as benefits, marriage, divorce, bankruptcy, home buying and more.

Gather the right tools

Once you have your goal in mind and an idea of ​​what you need to do to achieve it, you may need to look for tools to help you along the way.

For example, if your goal is to get into the habit of knowing where your money is going or to start tracking a budget, a budgeting app can be an essential tool for taking the next steps. Personal Capital, for example, connects to your bank accounts, credit cards, investment accounts, and other financial accounts, and the platform automatically categorizes your transactions. This gives you an easy way to find out where your money is going each month. And, you can use this information to establish a realistic budget.

Or let’s say one thing you really want to accomplish this year is start investing your money, even if you don’t know what to invest in. Apps like Wealthfront and Betterment, which use robo-advisors to build a portfolio of investments that make sense to you based on your risk tolerance, goals and retirement date, can serve as tools for help you achieve this.

To take part

Once you have all these ideas on paper, it’s time to take action. Thinking about what you have to do is only half the battle – actually doing it can feel scarier. But according to Lattimer, avoidance can actually undermine your progress.

Putting all of these steps together can help you feel more in control of your finances. And the more positive action you take, the more progress you will make and the more secure and motivated you will feel to continue.

Edelweiss Asset Management Company has decided to limit inflows into the ‘Recently Listed IPO Fund’ in order to review the liquidity profile and pipeline of upcoming opportunities.

Following this, the fund house limited lump sum purchases, transfers, Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) and Systematic Transfer Plan (STP) to ₹1 lakh per day per Permanent Account Number (PAN). effective February 1 until further notice.

However, existing SIP/STP mandates received before January 31 will continue to exist, regardless of the amount. The fund has assets under management of ₹1,100 crore at the end of December.

The bull run in the primary market has started to wane after hitting a record high of over ₹1 crore lakh last year with the listing of new age businesses. Some of the IPOs, which made a huge stock gain when they debuted, had plunged within days after the euphoria subsided.

Recently listed IPO fund Edelweiss invests in the top 100 companies in the IPO index and has achieved a CAGR of 57% in the past year and 34% in three years.

Launched in February 2018, the fund invests in listed companies or companies wishing to enter the capital markets through an initial public offering (IPO).

Completing the move is in the interests of investors, Radhika Gupta, managing director and CEO of Edelwiess Mutual Fund, said that after rapid growth in the fund’s assets under management since its launch, the fund company wants to grab this opportunity to review portfolio liquidity and also review the IPO. pipeline in the coming months.

“If new opportunities emerge, we could reopen it for large lump sum flows. Until then, SIPs/STPs are welcome,” she said.

“We advise investors to continue to invest in the fund via SIPs/STPs and at the same time we will continue to examine various factors and ways to revive significant inflows in the time ahead,” the fund house said.

The fund has been selective while investing in IPOs and has avoided some overvalued and bad companies that have been listed lately.

BRAINERD — From tournament veterans to those with a “fishing bucket list,” it’s time to gear up for the Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza, returning to Gull Lake Hole-in-the-Day Bay on Saturday January 29, for its 31st annual charity tournament.

As the Jaycees continue to get closer and closer to bringing thousands of their closest friends back onto the ice again for the Ice Fishing Extravaganza, Brainerd Jaycees 2022 President Andrew Jay said he hopes everyone will be returning to Gull Lake for this year’s in-person ice cream. fishing contest because the “ice looks good”.

“It’s hard to know what to expect…the outdoor industry has exploded over the past two years,” Jay said. “There’s nothing in stock, from fishing houses to trucks and everything, you know, it’s all so picked out. So we have so many new anglers who are going to come and join us as well.”

The tournament is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. on January 29 on Gull Lake, with tickets available for purchase for $50 at all Fleet Farm locations through January 29. Entrants and guests may enter the tournament area through a checkpoint after 8:00 a.m. on the day of the contest.

There is also a “catch of the day” sticker that can be added to any ticket for an additional $5.

The Extravagant Catch of the Day Prize is an additional contest within the tournament that gives participants a chance to win an ice fishing prize worth nearly $9,000. The “mystery species” catch of the day will be announced the week before the event.

Each competitor will be allowed to fish one hole, per ticket, and is allowed a maximum of two holes.

“A lot of it is going to be pretty similar to what people have expected in the past, you know, we’re doing a lot of the same things, a lot more vendors this year,” Jay said. “Looks like we’ll have a really good selection of food and, you know, even stuff for sale there too.”

In his last days of preparation, there is only one thing left on his mind: ice cream.

“We have already been in contact with the sheriff and they are aware of the ice conditions. … The ice cream looks good,” Jay said.

Ice chisels are recommended as the holes are all pre-drilled.

Sheena Zieglar, Chief Marketing Officer of Brainerd Jaycees, said that since the contest began, the Jaycees have given back nearly $4 million to the community through their volunteer work.

“I guess (we have) over 150 to 200 volunteers on the ice,” Zieglar said. “From checking people in to helping with teardowns, our team of volunteers is amazing every year, but we can always use more.”

For Jay and the Jaycees, watching it all come together is the most exciting part. To see everyone get off the bus and run to find their lucky hole, “the whole day of atmosphere, it’s something else”.

Tickets can be purchased online at icefishing.org/shop or at any Fleet Farm store before January 29. To find more information or to inquire about volunteer opportunities, visit icefishing.org.

A new ice fishing tournament:

Prior to the in-person tournament, the Brainerd Jaycees will host America’s Ice Fishing Tournament, a new sister event to the Ice Fishing Extravaganza which is hosted virtually through the FishDonkey app.

Throughout the app, entrants will upload photos of their fish – walleye, northern pike, crappie, perch and sunfish as eligible species – and they will be scored on a points-based system, giving a maximum of 100 points for a perfect fish.

Participants will still need to use a commercially available bump board or measuring board, but with the point system, a 100-point sunfish will beat a 90-point north. If a tie breaker is required, the first registered fish would win.

The tournament is open to all ice fishing anglers across America on January 22, 2022, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. All proceeds from the event are donated to charity.

The tournament’s top prize is also an F-150 truck or $25,000 in cash.

Registration and more information for the national tournament can be found at virtualicefishing.org or on Facebook.

Microsoft’s $70 billion bid for Video Game Maker http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/microsofts-70-billion-bid-for-video-game-maker/ Tue, 18 Jan 2022 16:31:37 +0000 http://www.eqmusclerelease.com/microsofts-70-billion-bid-for-video-game-maker/

Microsoft is set to strike a deal to buy “Call of Duty” video game maker Activision Blizzard in a deal that would value the company at around $70 billion, according to media reports. The transaction is an all-cash transaction for $95 per share.

Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. In 2020, global PC gaming market revenue was estimated at nearly $37 billion in the United States, and the mobile gaming market generated an estimated revenue of over $77 billion, according to Statista. Activision owns two of the most popular and lucrative games, Call of Duty and Candy Crush.

Microsoft is already among the top five video game makers by revenue with Sony, Tencent and Nintendo in the top spots. This deal could position the company near the top, just behind Sony. Microsoft is probably the Big Tech company, along with Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google, that invests the most in this industry. But other companies are not completely leaving this industry. Amazon bought Twitch in 2014, a video game streaming service where people can watch others play. Apple and Google generate billions of dollars each year in App Store fees from consumers who pay for games and in-app purchases. Meta (formerly Facebook) is investing in augmented reality with its Oculus division, producing virtual reality headsets. Even Netflix is ​​trying to leverage its customer reach to launch new on-demand video games.

Microsoft-Activision’s regulatory assessment may provide new analysis on which markets are relevant, how these markets are related, and whether other Big Tech companies should be included in the analysis. Companies are expected to file the agreement in multiple countries and an antitrust investigation may be conducted in parallel. Past experience with similar agreements suggests that EU and US authorities will collaborate during the analysis.

At this point, it’s unclear if the companies will face significant antitrust issues, but the review can be complex as regulators may need to test market definitions. Regulators may not only need to investigate the differences between PC games, console games, and mobile games, but they may also consider whether future VR developments should be included and, if so, how. they can be defined. Although the metaverse may be too far from a reality to be included in the analysis, it cannot be entirely ignored.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has previously expressed interest in the Metaverse, “when we think about our vision of what a Metaverse can be, we think it’s not going to be a single, centralized Metaverse” , Nadella said.

In addition to the limitations of video game market definitions, regulators may also need to consider the different ecosystems of big tech companies and their interactions. Big Tech companies don’t operate in silos and the insights they gain from the various acquisitions can give them new opportunities to expand into adjacent or new businesses. In this regard, regulators can ask companies to ensure that consumer data will not be used for advertising purposes or in other parts of the business.

NEW PYMNTS DATA: AUTHENTICATION OF IDENTITIES IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY – DECEMBER 2021

On:More than half of US consumers believe biometric authentication methods are faster, more convenient and more reliable than passwords or PINs. So why do less than 10% use them?
