A Resilient March

The financial markets’ resilient performance during March was striking, despite pockets of uncertainty surrounding the strength of the economy—and not to mention concerns over the durability of the banking system. The ability of the market to navigate nearly two weeks of headline-related risk tested the underlying resolve of the market’s capacity to look ahead.

Moreover, it underpinned our conviction that despite setbacks, including bouts of volatility, we will see the beginnings of a new bull market emerge, especially as the Federal Reserve (Fed) winds down its campaign to quell inflation.

April Tip of the Month – College Preparation Tips

Getting ready to apply for college is an exciting and anxious time for high school students and their parents. The competition to get into college is stiff, and with the rising cost of education, getting enough aid is critical for many students pursuing their educational and career goals. Each academic year, over 85% of students receive financial assistance. One way to get started on the right foot is to have your FAFSA completed. 

The cutoff to submit your FAFSA form is by 11:59 p.m., central time (CT), on June 30, 2023. You should submit any corrections or updates needed by September 9, 2023, by 11:59 p.m. CT.


What you need to get started:

Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID

Federal Income Tax Return

Social Security Number and Driver's License Number

A List of Untaxed Income

A List of Your Income and Assets

A List of Schools Where You Want to Apply


Colleges may have their own deadline, so you should check with the school(s) you are interested in and take note of the deadline. The FAFSA website has a comprehensive list of state deadlines for the 2023-24 academic year. 

You must meet the June 30 deadline to be eligible for aid for the current academic year. The earlier you submit your FAFSA, the easier it will be to be awarded the assistance you need. Many types of aid have limited funding, so being early can benefit you in an increasingly competitive environment.
