J.K. Financial, Inc. D Magazine Best Wealth Manager Award … John Kvale 14th Consecutive D Magazine Best Financial Planner Award

For those in the Dallas area, you may want to pick up this month’s edition of D Magazine…..

J.K. Financial, Inc. Announced as Best Wealth Manager D Magazine Recipient

This is a peer nomination process and vetting by industry professionals and approved by the editors.

But look carefully on page 35 rather than the center fold as we insisted on going with a different, more casual … and in our minds appropriate picture… and statement.

Not confiding in the more formal picture pushed us to a different section…once again well worth it in our minds.

John Kvale Fourteenth Consecutive Best Financial Planner

It’s an honor to once again be nominated by peers and approved by editors as D Magazine’s Best Financial Planner for the fourteenth time in a row…

Thanks very much and congratulations to my peers who also were nominated.

Wow time flies !

Have a Great ‘D Magazine Honored’ Day and Wonderful Weekend!

Draghi throws cold Ice on Euro … New Videos … New Mug Shot (yikes!)

While only a partial week with the holiday shortened Monday, there were a lot of events that occurred.

Mario Draghi In the House

ECB (European Central Bank) Chief Mario Draghi announced more cowbell stimulus

  • EU Marginal Lending rate cut from .4 to .3%
  • EU Refinancing Rate from .15 to .05%
  • EU Bank Deposit rate from …. -.1 to -.2% … yes you read that correct, Negative

Care to guess when the announcement was made?

Euro USD

Recall, most countries like their currency being WEAKER as it makes exporting more competitive, although a headwind for imports.

Euro < 130 .. More to come ? Sure looks like it !

All New Helpful Videos

Given client continued usage of our web pages, this blog site, and new technology improvements … over the labor day weekend (yaya … boring for many, but fun for me) I recorded three videos that are our most common requests or confusion.

This will not be the last for sure, as they were fun to do, helpful, and useful to show future technology improvements.

New Mug Shot in the Making

Mid week marks the first official new mug shot in over four years …. Wow, where did that grey come from … Oh well, after much prodding by Cathy (office manager) the coming D Magazine “Best Financial Planner” award will have an updated (or old dated ?? haha) new mug shot !

Have a Great Friday and a Super Weekend!

Thanks and congratulations to my fellow professionals. It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Financial Planning Community!

PS NOT A TRAVEL PLANNER: I am out this week, bringing my family for a tennis tournament and fishing to an area of the country with two hurricanes (one downgraded to tropical storm…yeaa) and on Saturday, taking a short 20 minute ride away from our home location (raining at home base due to the afore-mentioned storm) to within a few miles of a controversial verdict location….as luck would have it, we left several hours before the verdict was released…(Never felt unsafe and have had NO PROBLEMS at all, EVERYONE extremely nice.) Not to worry, my investment skills are much better than travel planning, an obviously low bar!!   haha…  Thanks again D Magazine !
