LATEST UPDATES

  • Infrastructure and Assumptions: Texas and Beyond (2/25/2021)

    Infrastructure is the sort of thing that most people take for granted. You just flip a switch or turn a knob and expect your house to light up, your furnace or air conditioner to kick into action, and the water to flow from the tap. And most of the time that's exactly what happens. Until it doesn't.
  • Stagnation and Stimulus (2/9/2021)

    Friday's middling employment report was somewhat promising on the surface — until you dig into the details.
  • Chaos and Order (2/3/2021)

    While the GameStop saga has captured headlines during the past week, it’s important to remember that this kind of behavior — an attempted short squeeze — has gone on for years with various hedge funds on either side of the battle. The interesting twist this time is the involvement of a group of individual, retail investors who banded together via social media — primarily on Reddit’s WallStreetBets page — to join the fight.
  • Consequences Known and Unknown (1/12/2021)

    Our firm is based in the nation's capital. And though it's been many months since we've regularly frequented our office on North Capitol Street, it remains within a few blocks of the United States Capitol building. So, as we, along with the rest of the nation, watched the storming of the House and Senate during the tallying of presidential electoral votes last week, it held particular resonance.
  • Rounding Out a Rollercoaster Year (12/8/2020)

    Uncertainty has characterized much of 2020 and the year's final month is no different than the 11 that preceded it. In some ways, December looks to be the strangest month of the year, with the holiday season and promise of a vaccine contending with the worsening pandemic and economic warning signs.
  • ICMA-RC Supports Additional Congressional Relief for Local and State Governments (7/22/2020)

    Congress reconvened on July 20, 2020. It is expected that consideration will be given to a fourth legislative package to address the impacts of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
  • COVID-19 & Market Volatility: Can Greater Asset Diversification in Defined-Contribution Plans Lead to Better Outcomes? (5/7/2020)

    Matthew Brenner, Managing Vice President, Investments, and other panel guests discuss the COVID-19 economic shock and its impact on portfolios with Georgetown Center for Retirement Initiative’s Executive Director Angela Antonelli.
