We are really excited to launch TargetQ Views. As we occupy an interesting seat in the investment industry and are poised to embrace the next technological revolution, we have many thoughts to share on the retirement industry. We aim to provide pieces that are interesting and worthwhile for advisors, analysts, and other financial professionals, as well as curious non-pros.
Our investment team here at Stadion will be manning the post and we certainly hope to have insights from other special guests. We are big believers in transparency and respectful opinions on a range of topics, from serious to entertaining . We will be factual in our approach and positive about all, a refreshing approach in today’s negative-driven news outlets.
While growing up in the great state of Alabama, I hated anything that related to English and the Language Arts and therefore focused on math. After all, there are only 10 digits (counting zero) versus 26 letters. Also, with math there is always an answer. Perhaps because I migrated eastward and attended the University of Georgia—and also never left its town of Athens—verbal and written communication is now of particular interest. Of course, this interest may just be an effect of the wisdom of age. But, please know, it wouldn’t be without our content-folks like Gordon Lamb to make these texts read well.
We invite you to follow along and read our thoughts on the market, investments, technology, and industry trends in the one-size-fits-all dominated retirement space.
