Its a milestone that still eludes U.S. investors.

Whether this benign view is accurate or not will definitely be a major driver of the market in 2017. Extra resourcesI think back on the year as investors entered 2016 yearning for coherence, purpose, and meaning only to be exposed to another highlight reel of all that can happen. A year which included four gut-wrenching, equity plunges followed by breath-taking rebounds; dire economic forecasts and fleeting respites of optimism; bond yields plummeting despite consensus saying they would rise; economic turmoil around the world, especially in China and other emerging markets; a year where consensus fell drastically short, moments when entire nations suddenly swung together and did the same thing, like a herd of cows facing a coyote. http://jasemyersvoice.universitypunjabi.org/2016/11/24/simple-advice-on-valuable-programs-in-course-for-curriculum-vitaeManaging the financial affairs of others is a daunting task.

At the end of the year, I find myself reflecting on my friends, my investment advisory clients, while standing on a subway platform hidden underneath a long, mean street, one that appears always in the fog and always at dusk. Time seemed to have paused, my thoughts driven deep into the catacombs of my soul searching for a reason on the how and the why I could have – in 2016 – possibly lost over half of my clients to robotic portfolio management services that use algorithms to make asset-allocation decisions and formulas to dictate a human beings risk tolerance!

The new investment normal clamors for cheaper and faster; it craves individuality and it demands optionality. For me, the robo-advisor was that over-muscled thug abruptly untying decades of his personal high-touch with atomistic high-tech. Technology seemed to mock the worth of that deep human yearning for the personal, to be treasured as an individual; replacing it with clients seen as nothing other than a formulaic on-boarding questionnaire or result of a random e-mail harvest. As I reflect on the year that was and the year that will be, I wonder how my old clients all with different stripes of risk-tolerance and goals – possibly made it through some of those dark market valleys last year without me a friend and fellow human – to reassure them to stay the course! Did they panic and sell stocks at the bottom? Did the robot field phone calls during the night of the Brexit vote or the U.S. election? Did technology know which clients preferred academic white papers over videos? Did technology know how to talk clients out of speculating with options? Did technology have reliable, human contacts to help save clients money on taxes and insurance?
