CIA In The News

2020

In their Impact Investing series, Mitchell was quoted throughout the article "How advisors figure out which ESG funds are a good fit for socially conscious clients and their portfolios."  I think the main point is that "Investing sustainably is a personal experience, and there are multiple strategies under the sustainable-investing umbrella."


S&P Global Market Intelligence 2020

Many people do not know that 5G is not only faster, but it is far more energy efficient.  S&P goes over the advantages of 5G technology and how it's helping many telecom companies claim they're getting closer to Carbon Neutral.  Towards the end of the article Mitchell is quoted as talking about how Corporate America is moving towards sustainability. (although they misspelled Kraus). You can view it at "New tech, 5G push US telcos toward carbon neutral future."

2020

In their Bloomberg Wealth section and article entitled "Feuding Over Election Could Prove Costly For Rich U.S. Families."  The discussion talks about how important good communication is for estate planning and Mitchell is quoted talking about how the current environment is disrupting that communication.  While the article focuses on the ultra high net worth the principals apply to any family.

2020

The IRS is slowly but surely issuing final regulations on the CARES act.  Most tax laws are open to interpretation and the IRS often finalizes certain things after the law is passed.  The IRS recently published the final rules on RMDs that happened before the CARES act was passed.  Mitchell was quoted on what that can mean to clients in Dhara Singh's article "IRS extends deadline for retirees to undo required distributions."

Redfin just published "11 Expert Tips to Help You Save for Your Down Payment."  The number one tip was by Mitchell... "Like anything in life, upfront pain leads to long-term gain. You can’t lose 20 pounds in a day and you can’t save for a down payment overnight. Slow and steady savings and doing without at times will get you to your goal faster."
