In this quickly-changing world, it's easy to become inundated with news, information and opinions ranging from uplifting to disheartening. I'd like to share a few links from respected thought leaders and other outlets that may give you some perspective on how current events are shaping your portfolio and how you should react to those events. Of particular note, I've received excellent feedback from clients on the webcast hosted by Dimensional Funds on 3/13. I hope you find some good and helpful information here.
