A Positive, Philanthropic Development in our Otherwise Mind-Numbing Tax Code

November 19, 2016

This week, we seek to entertain you with a positive development in our otherwise mind-numbing tax code.  Insomuch as charity is deeply seeded in our firm’s culture, let’s discuss a terrific philanthropic incentive passed by Congress earlier this year.

Dear Clients and Friends,

In the last few months, I’ve passed the Weekend Reading baton to other family members here at MOR Wealth Management.  Recently inspired by this development, today Dan Levinson takes the keyboard to enlighten us in the spirit of giving.

Brexit: Disaster, Annoyance, or Opportunity?

June 24, 2016

In summary, we believe, and have been vocal about this for some time, that the effects of the Brexit will be far less substantial than the news media and the European banks are suggesting.


Dear Clients and Friends,

In light of UK’s decision to leave the European Union, we are postponing this weekend’s reading so that we may make a few comments on this topic. They will be brief, and we see opportunity abound.
