President's Message

January 2020


Happy 2020 everyone!


It’s always exciting to start a new decade. If we think back 100 years, the 20’s were pretty exciting and fun, less the prohibition part. The roaring 20s were a time of economic growth and prosperity following WWI. New technology, music, and fashion .”were always in fashion.” Wait, that’s  Barry Manilow’s Copacabana, not the roaring 20’s.


It’s interesting to compare the decade leading up to 2020, to the one leading up to 1920. Both preceding decades had major global financial struggles. Similar to the beginning of the Roaring 20’s in 1920, 2020 appears to be a time of financial prosperity and opportunity after a decade of recovery. Along with the financial aspect, the Roaring 20’s saw technology evolve with automobiles, telephones, household electricity, and motion pictures. In 2020, we watch those motion pictures on our phone, which may also be our watch. What will Apple do next? But more importantly, will we be able to enjoy the financial and technological prosperity of this decade and avoid the devastating end that happened in 1929?


As financial professionals, we are starting this new decade with a healthy stock market, Fed rates dropping, rapidly evolving technology, and financial fraud changing as quickly as technology itself. Attending MNAFP Luncheons and Conferences can help us stay informed, educated, and connected. We look forward to seeing you at our next luncheon on February 13th. Watch your emails for additional information about the luncheon as well as our upcoming Conference on April 28th, at River Center.
