Most of us have dreamt at one time or another (likely when we were younger!) about having such a well-rewarded life that we had staff to look after our every need.

The question is, why are the benefits of a family office not available to other affluent investors who may not fall into the "super rich" category? Believe it or not, they are. On this edition of "Your Money Manual," Vince talks about why a virtual family office may be right for you.
In many regions throughout the United States, developers are working on projects to revitalize underserved and low-income communities, and in the process, creating jobs and economic growth through increased income and tax revenues.

To discuss the details of Qualified Opportunity Zones, how they work and who can benefit, Vince Annable again welcomes Matt Leiter, Sr. Vice President Equity Markets at GK Development.

On this edition of Your Money Manual, Vince Annable welcomes Michael Knapp, President of MDS Energy Development, to talk about the growth of America’s natural gas industry and the key drivers of investment that could help to power its growth and sustainability well into the future.

Have you or someone you know ever attempted to sell an asset, and it wasn’t worth what you thought—or hoped—it was, so you put off the sale, but the asset continued to decline in value?

On this edition of Your Money Manual, Vince Annable welcomes Robert Ambrosi, Chairman and CEO of ARCTRUST to talk about why investors often hesitate to sell their investments. He’ll help us all to understand the important concept of intrinsic value as well as some guidelines that his firm uses to help determine the possible future value of an asset prior to making important investment decisions.
