Don’t let politicians influence your investment decisions – The Oakland Press

Thanksgiving is the time of year when families gather for food, football and, of course, conversation. Some discussions may become spirited, especially if the topic is politics.

I also view Thanksgiving as the unofficial start of the 2024 election season. This time next year we’ll be thankful that the election is over.

In the coming months, politicians will spend fortunes in their efforts to win an election. As someone that talks to a lot of people from various political viewpoints, however, I’m doubtful that many will change their opinions between now and next year’s elections. People are pretty much dug in with their political opinions.

Although it’s a topic I prefer to avoid, politics often come up when I’m meeting with clients. I much prefer for clients and readers not to view me as red or blue, but rather as an advisor that works to keep them in the green.
